Summary

Scientists often challenge conventional wisdom and spark debates that last for generations. But no scientist has fuelled more debate than Charles Darwin. To some he is the revolutionary "father" of evolution. To others he is the perverse "originator" of modern eugenics.
In The Darwin Myth: The Life and Lies of Charles Darwin, author Benjamin Wiker brings these conflicting identities to light. Laying out the evidence and sound scientific arguments, Wiker offers a critical analysis of Darwin's theories as well as the social, scientific, and religious implications of his work, illuminating the inevitable truth about his powerful, yet ultimately poisonous, legacy.
Benjamin Wiker writes full time as a senior fellow in the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and is also a senior fellow with the Discovery Institute. He has written several other books, including Ten Books That Screwed Up the World. He lives in rural Ohio with his wife and seven children.

Critic reviews

"[S]heds more light on the contrast between Darwin the kindly man and the chilling logic of his theory than anything I have read. I highly recommend it." (Phillip E. Johnson, law professor emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, and author of Darwin on Trial)
"[Wiker] treats his subject as too few biographers do - not as an icon, not as a devil, but as a man. Very highly recommended." (Michael Behe, Ph.D. author of Darwin's Black Box)

Mixed review

Overall, I had mixed reviews for this book. One one hand it had some very interesting parts but on the other hand, it was boring at times and there was some other parts that I didn't quite agree with.

With that said though, I've listened and read several other books on Darwin and this one included a lot of stuff that I did not already know so, it was certainly educational.
