Product Description

Review

“With his charming, breezy, narrative style, Bill empowers the reader to see the natural world as it is, not as some would wish it to be. He does it right. And, as I expected, he does it best.” ―Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ph.D, host of COSMOS

“This gracefully written book provides a tour through not just the big ideas of evolution, but why evolution is such a captivating idea scientifically, philosophically, and emotionally. Written from the heart--but science always comes from the heart with Bill Nye.” ―Eugenie C. Scott, Ph.D., author of Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction

“Bill Nye has penned one of the clearest and most moving explanations of that process since Darwin's On the Origin of Species. With clarity and passion, Nye brings evolutionary theory to life.” ―Michael Shermer, Ph.D., author of Why Darwin Matters and The Moral Arc

“Bill Nye has written a wonderfully clear, readable, and enjoyable explanation of what evolution is and is not. In his casual, humorous style, he…describes the gigantic mountain of evidence that demonstrates that evolution not only happened in the past, but is happening in real time.” ―Donald Prothero, Ph.D., author of Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters

“Following right in his mentor Carl Sagan's footsteps, this call to action and awareness of the lingering ‘debate' over the reality of Evolution will further cement Bill Nye's place as our time's premier spokesman for science and reason.” ―Dr. Jim Bell, president of The Planetary Society and author of The Interstellar Age

About the Author

Bill Nye is a scientist, engineer, comedian, and inventor. He has a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell University where he studied under Carl Sagan, and worked on the 747 as an engineer at Boeing before creating and hosting his much-loved Emmy award-winning PBS/Discovery Channel show Bill Nye the Science Guy. He holds six Honorary Doctorate degrees from Lehigh University, Willamette University, Quinnipiac University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Goucher College, and Johns Hopkins, and teaches at Cornell regularly as a visiting professor.

Corey S. Powell is the former editor in chief of American Scientist and Discover, where he is currently editor at large and continues to write the "Out There" column and blog. He is also a visiting scholar at NYU's SHERP science journalism program, as well as a freelance writer for Popular Science, Smithsonian, Nautilus, and Aeon; his article "The Madness of the Planets" appears in The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2014. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, two daughters, and a small collection of Permian-era fossils. This is his first collaboration with Bill Nye, but he hopes it will not be his last.

Bill Nye hits it out of the park again! He writes with such passion, but documents every statement with facts and statistics that leave little room for argument. Not an easy read for the unscientific person, but definitely an interesting one!

Format: Paperback
In this immensely readable and engaging book, the author, a well-known science educator, discusses the Theory of Evolution. In fact, just about anything and everything that one (or, at least, I) can think of that is related to evolution in some way is touched upon here (and even more). The author’s very friendly, witty and chatty style makes reading this book a real pleasure and it’s written to be highly accessible to a very broad readership.

Now, from the book’s subtitle, I was expecting a near equal representation of what the creationists profess to believe along with much-anticipated scientific refutations. Unfortunately, there was very little of that; just a few comments interspersed here and there, along with a very brief account of a debate that the author had with one of the leading creationists in America (well, in Kentucky, anyway). In a way, that was disappointing for me since I was looking forward to reading about the best arguments used on both sides – especially the creationists since I know so little about them.

Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the book very much and I certainly agree that it makes a major contribution to science literacy in the world. Although I found a few passages to be a bit technical, I am certain that everyone can learn a lot from reading this wonderful book.

This is quite an in-depth look at evolution and how it affects many aspects of life on earth, including viruses, disease and microorganisms. I learned a lot and it furthered my knowledge in this very interesting topic. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because the author lapses into a rant quite frequently about the ignorance of the creationists and their rejection of science which I found interesting initially and then tedious after he referred to it too many times. I am already convinced that evolution is real but I am already sold and don't need the argument aimed at creationists to prove the validity of the science behind evolution. Other than that, this is an excellent book on the topic. I would recommend it to anyone interested in evolution.

I like how this book is not accusatory to people of faith. In classic, likable Bill Nye fashion he engages people of all backgrounds and introduces them to this wonderful world of science that fascinates and confounds us all. A treat to read!

As a science buff I was surprised that I still learned a fair bit from this book. Bill has a great way of writing to make otherwise mundane topics engaging. I highly recommend it.

By A. Volk #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 10 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is Bill Nye's attempt to demonstrate to readers the evidence for the theory of evolution. Scientifically speaking, the theory is one of the strongest in all of science. The book is written in a friendly, comfortable style that should appeal to most readers. In particular, Bill is interested in educating up and coming generations, recognizing the difficulty of swaying the minds of those who have denied evolution for decades. So is it a good book? That depends on the audience.

If you're someone who's already very familiar with evolution (I'd count myself in that crowd), there's little that's likely to be new here. An interest fact or anecdote, to be sure, and the writing style is enough to keep the book interesting. But it's not new or fascinating enough to really justify 5 stars from people who deeply understand evolution.

What about for those who deeply deny evolution? Well, the book is laid out in a conversational style. So it's not the most rigorous, logical, and unrelenting defense of evolution. I don't know if it would be enough to convert someone with really strong anti-evolutionary beliefs. So in that sense, it's a three to four star book.

So who is the sweet spot for this book? Curious individuals who want to learn more about evolution or science. For them, this book is perfect. Bill does a good job of explaining the facets of evolutionary theory and the evidence for them. He also wanders a bit into other areas of science. He applies evolutionary thinking to humans and to broader philosophical questions. And he does it all in an easy, familiar, and friendly tone. For this audience, this is definitely a five star book.

Overall then, I'm going with 4 stars, but you can probably adjust that based on which group from above you fit in. I certainly liked reading the book, and look forward to more books on science from Bill and his editor Corey Powell.
