Amazon wouldn’t post this devastating book review, so we did it for them

Writer and broadcaster Adam Rutherford – you might have heard or seen him on the BBC – was frustrated in his efforts to post his review of a new book about Darwin.

Which is a shame, because it’s quite a devastating takedown of the book described by another critic as an ‘unconvincing attempt to kick Darwin off his throne’.

Rutherford says a similar sort of thing, but in rather livelier language. Here it is in full.

So it’s not ALL bad then.


He later tweeted to say he’d find a way of putting it up.
