I wish that the true revolutionary nature of the theory as well as the fascinating nature of the subject had been exposed to us in high school. For years, I had been enjoying Richard Dawkins and Stephen Jay Gould in a passive manner. More recently, I sat up and took notice after reading The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution. I followed this with Why Evolution Is True and have been hooked ever since. I am planning to create a nicer epub of “The Origin of Species” to express my gratitude.
