In The Origin of Species Darwin outlined his theory of evolution, which proposed that species had been evolving and differentiating over time under the influence of natural selection. On its publication it became hugely influential, bringing about a seismic shift in the scientific view of humanity's place in the world that is still controversial today. It is both a brilliant work of science and also a clear, vivid and at times even moving, piece of writing that reflects both Darwin's genius and his boundless enthusiasm for the natural world.With an Afterword by Oliver Francis

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.
