I read, and thoroughly enjoyed, Nye's book on climate change last year, so when this showed up on the book exchange shelf at work, I knew I would have to read this one as well.

Bill Nye has embraced the role of science ambassador to the masses, explaining science to those who struggle to understand it, sharing his sense of wonder at the amazing universe that science reveals to us. This book explores evolution and what science tells us about how life came to be and where it might be headed. Nye does a good job of explaining the basic principles of evolution, and does his best to show why this knowledge is important to understand.


According to Nye, this book was inspired by his debate with creationist Ken Ham. Listening to the creationist arguments convinced Nye that we need to do a better job explaining the importance of the science and its role in our lives. And the resulting book makes a heroic effort at doing just that. While it is unlikely to change the minds of true believers in creationism, it should help those who find the science complicated and difficult to understand.


For those who find science fascinating, but appreciate having it explained in terms that are easy to understand, Nye’s books, including this one, should be on their reading list.

After his much-hyped debate with Ken Hamm over evolution, Bill Nye decided he had more to say on the subject. It manages to be pretty light-hearted while covering a wide range of topics related to evolutionary biology. I don't know that this book would convince a die-hard creationist, but I'm also not sure it's meant to. I appreciate its additions to my understanding of how life works on this planet, and opened my eyes to a large number of discoveries I wasn't aware of. More importantly, Nye offers numerous examples of why it's important to ask these questions and understand the answers. And that's where this book works best: as a jumping off point to learn more.

Picked up at July meetup in Crystal City. I love Bill Nye, watched him in school. Although the eye brows make him look a bit like a bad 50's TV villain. I also like books about science and scientific literacy, which seems to be the genre here.
