When the eminent naturalist Charles Darwin returned from South America on board the . S Beagle in 1836, he brought with him the notes and evidence which would form the basis of his landmark theory of evolution of species by a process of natural selection. This theory, published as The Origin of Species in 1859, is the basis of modern biology and the concept of biodiversity. It also sparked a fierce scientific, religious and philosophical debate which still continues today. Everyman's Library classics.

Do not buy the "Gold Edition!" This is NOT the complete book. It is missing the last half of the book. There are 14 chapters in On The Origin Of Species. This book abruptly ends mid-sentence on the first page of chapter 9.

This "150th Anniversary Edition" seems to be simply a reprint of the 100th Anniversary Edition. In particular, the forward by Julian Huxley was written in 1958 and while it is still mostly relevant, it has dated badly in a few places.

The main text is Darwin's 6th Edition.

Darwin considerably amended Origin of Species through the course of its six editions. For example he first used the expression "survival of the fittest" (coined by Herbert Spencer) in the 5th edition and he first used the term "evolution" in the 6th edition. However, he also diluted some of his arguments in an attempt to deflect criticism. Most notably he made more allowance for now discredited Lamarckian ideas of hereditable affects of use and disuse, versus pure natural selection.

It is an open argument whether the 1st edition or the 6th edition best represents his real thinking. My 2 cents would be that the differences are relatively minor in the context of the overall work. The key driving ideas are well expressed in both and either is a fine start. Just be aware that other readers of Origin of Species may have seen a slightly different text!

This is pretty difficult to read, not because of the language or sentence structure which is surprisingly easy, but because of the content. So I am glad I purchased the $0.99 version. While the contents are the works of a genius of his time, it was difficult for me to force myself through the pages and pages observations of the ants and plants, and bugs, and doves to get to his famous theories and summaries. I do understand that this wasn't intended to be read casually, but given it's importance in history I wanted to give it a go. Just realize it can be difficult to get through.

Darwin wrote a great book. It deserves to be treated properly and that does not happen in this Kindle edition. It s full of mistakes to the point of often being confusing and unintelligible. it is clear that no human being ever looked at the output that became the Kindle.

At $0.99 it is wildly overpriced.

And, surprisingly, it's not hard to read at all. Darwin was not a scientist: he was a naturalist, an observer of nature, and that's what makes his work not only commendable but also very approachable.

For me, everything he explains about descent through modification and rudimentary organs and common ancestors not only makes sense but is corroborated by the principles of Biology concerning classification and evolution.

Darwin, contrary to how creationists reacted and are still reacting towards him, does not confront the idea of "God created everything out of nothing" and dismisses it as nonsense (except maybe a little towards the end, when he writes "Do they really believe that atoms have been commanded suddenly to flash into living tissues?"). He takes more of a perplexed approach and doesn't seem to understand why they can't look at the facts.

*** A note on the free Kindle edition: it does seem abridged and does not include the chart that the author refers to on several occasions but the gist of natural selection is in here***

"On the Origin of Species" is as groundbreaking today as it was when it was first published, and it's so eminently readable that will become a favorite (if you're willing to give it a chance). I love and admire the book - but I'm not so thrilled about the "Illustrated Classics" version.

Several book publishers have approached this book with fresh eyes (most recently, David Quammen). The approach makes perfect sense: take Darwin's text, and add illustrations that demonstrate Darwin's ideas in a visual format hat the author could only imagine. The disadvantage with this, of course, is that you may come closer to a coffee table book than anything else. But the "Illustrated Classics" version contains some period pictures, biological illustrations, and the like in something that comes closer to a mixed salad than a meal. For such a great price, it's a pretty good bargain; but this gathers together a variety of inexpensive and public access images that's more appealing than raw text - but some readers may want more.

I love "On the Origin of Species," but I only wish the "Illustrated Classics" version could be more compelling.

People tend to hold Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution by means of natural selection in either high regard or extremely low esteem depending on their own perspectives and opinions. The reality is that too few people have actually read "On the Origin of Species." Even the majority of practicing professional biologists have not read the whole thing.

I have read this book at least four times. It is insightful, loaded with an overwhelming amount of empirical observation, and astute interpretation of those data. Darwin crafted a well thought out theory. His book sold out on the first day in 1859, and it has been in print pretty much ever since. His theory has been under attack from the non-science community and under intense scrutiny by the scientific community for the past 150 years. The result is that the theory is more complete and robust than ever.

If you really want to know what's up with Darwin and his theory, read his book. Amazon and Kindle have made it available for free. Dive in and find out for yourself what is going on.

If you do, be prepared for lots of examples of pigeons. :-)

This is a 5-star book, and every educated person in the world owes it to herself or himself to read it.

Be informed, be educated, be amazed.
