Actually I don't care about Darwin's life either. You can learn a lot more about evolution by reading any decent modern textbook (and RD's books)than reading "the origin". Darwin did provide the original insights but the scope and depth of the theory of evolution have been greatly expanded and enhanced since his time. 'The origin' is only of historical interest as far as I am concerned.

I don't learn physics by reading Newton's manuscripts. But Newton's biography is probably interesting for those who want to study the psychology of creativity and insanity.
