Gopnik on Darwin & Lincoln: Read the First Chapter

We noted last week that New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik has just released a new book, Angels and Ages, which examines the unique stamp that Darwin and Lincoln placed on our modern times. Thanks to The New York Times, you can now read the first chapter of Gopnik’s book for free. It will give you a feel for his writing, which never disappoints. As a quick aside, I should mention that the Times has a section called First Chapters. It gives you free access to the first pages of many new and important books. A good resource to keep your eye on.
