Même après plusieurs lectures en français et en anglais, je trouve ce livre toujours excellent. Pour les spécialistes de l'évolution, certaines choses ont peut-être un peu vieilli depuis 150 ans, mais pour le lecteur non spécialiste que je suis, cette "Origine des Espèces est toujours aussi attrayante. En plus, la lecture en anglais pour un français, permet de retrouver le texte initial de Darwin et aussi de perfectionner un peu son niveau d'anglais.

Great value for money, this book is informative and interesting for anyone who likes biology, science, or evolution. However, the book I received had a different cover than the one pictured here, although not a big deal for me perhaps this would be something to consider.

This is a quick review of the book not a dissertation on Darwin or any other subject loosely related. At first I did not know what to expect. I already read " The Voyage of the Beagle: Charles Darwin's Journal of Researches". I figured the book would be similar. However I found "Origin" to be more complex and detailed.

Taking in account that recent pieces of knowledge were not available to Charles Darwin this book could have been written last week. Having to look from the outside without the knowledge of DNA or Plate Tectonics, he pretty much nailed how the environment and crossbreeding would have an effect on natural selection. Speaking of natural selection, I thought his was going to be some great insight to a new concept. All it means is that species are not being mucked around by man (artificial selection).

If you picked up Time magazine today you would find all the things that Charles said would be near impossible to find or do. Yet he predicted that it is doable in theory. With an imperfect geological record many things he was not able to find at the writing of this book have been found (according to the possibilities described in the book.)
The only draw back to the book was his constant apologizing. If he had more time and space he could prove this and that. Or it looks like this but who can say at this time. Or the same evidence can be interpreted 180 degrees different.

In the end it is worth reading and you will never look at life the same way again.

Rares sont les livres qui ont autant marqué leur époque, et ouvert un débat aussi féroce. Outre la satisfaction de posséder dans sa bibliothèque un ouvrage aussi capital et élégamment relié, sa lecture s'avère facile et passionnante. Darwin ne fut peut-être pas le tout premier à émettre l'idée de sélection naturelle (voir son introduction historique), mais la rigueur et la clarté de sa démonstration scientifique en font un modèle du genre, et l'on comprend pourquoi cet ouvrage fut (et est toujours) si efficace à combattre les idées créationnistes. Ce que la génétique a rendu évident y est pressenti avec une intuition sûre ; par ailleurs Darwin n'hésite pas (marque d'un grand esprit) à avouer son ignorance face à des problèmes que la science ne résoudra qu'un siècle plus tard. Pour tous les curieux et amoureux de la raison.

Because these reviews are cross-posted this is a review of ISBN: 0517123207,with a cover that was defiantly made to be provocative. It depicts an (ape) allying view of going from all fours to upright. If this is what you are looking for then you need to read " 2001 : A Space Odyssey" by Arthur Charles Clarke.

On a tout dit sur Darwin mais on ne l'a peut-être pas assez lu. Ce qui est étonnant est que ce livre est très accessible, même au non spécialiste. Les exemples sont pris le plus souvent dans des espèces bien connues. Darwin ne craint pas de se répéter, mais on comprend qu'il insiste fortement pour promouvoir la sélection naturelle comme une rupture par rapport aux modes de pensée traditionnels, notamment créationistes. C'est à juste titre un des livres qui a changé le monde de la pensée, non seulement scientifique, mais culturelle et sociale.
