Bowlby's biography is not a work that I would recommend to anyone who hasn't read several biographies of Darwin: Janet Browne or Desmond/Moore for example. My sense is that one has to be rather well acquinted with Darwin - and come to care about the man - in order to digest a psychologist's analysis of Darwin's ill health or to care very much about cause and effect at all. I know that was my response, when I bought the book when it was first published. I simply couldn't read beyond the first twenty-five pages. But now that I've read other bios I find this work really quite illuminating on important biographical points that others seem not to have noticed or examined in the detail they deserve, the central importance of John Herschel and Alexander von Humbolt on Darwin's passion and approach to "natural history," for example. More later.
