The Descent of Man applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details Darwin's theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection.This book presents a full explanation of Darwin's ideas, including his belief that many important characteristics of human beings and animals have emerged in response to competition for mates.

He tells of his childhood, his student days at Edinburgh and Cambridge, his love of beetles, shooting and geology, and; his grandfather, Josiah Wedgwood.
