Francis Galton: a Lifetime of Exploration

by Gavan Tredoux

A new biography of Francis Galton has been sorely needed for many years. Based on extensive international archival research and the primary sources uncovered there, every aspect of Galton's life and research program has been reexamined. A miasma of misconception is dispersed and a fund of fresh evidence made available. Two main volumes are supplemented by seven volumes containing primary material.

This series will be released on the Kindle Store, Google Play Books and Apple iBooks soon, with all 9 volumes in EPUB and other reflowable e-reader formats. That is the most convenient way for most people to obtain them. All for educational purposes only, respecting the Creative Commons license. Any profits go solely to maintaining
