I really like and enjoyed the body of this historical work, but the intro written by this guy I never heard of is so biased and slanted that I can't believe someone let it be published with Darwin's fine writing. The whole intro(and it is expansive) is involved in trying to discredit Darwin's opinions. Save your money- It wasn't worth the $1.50 that I paid for it. Skip the 150 year anniversary edition and get the book without the biased introduction.
