A revolutionary bestseller

Charles Darwin introduced his famous theory in 1859 in a book whose title was “The origin of the species”. In this book Darwin expanded and modified Lamark’s evolution theory by introducing the natural selection concept. This new theory fueled strong debates and harsh criticism, but the book was a real bestseller which was sold out within one day!
