Jürgen Neffe: Darwin
"New Horizons - During this time you should attempt to broaden your horizons - through study, new and unfamiliar experiences, travel or by meeting people from totally different backgrounds."
said my horoscope. turns out, the book i am currently reading perfectly fits into this scheme: a combined travelogue / biography, written by Jürgen Neffe, a science journalist who reflects on Darwin's work and his journey while following in during a 1-year-trip.
the splendid subtitle of the book: "Das Abenteuer des Lebens" - "The adventure that is life".
