Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Evolution is one of the most powerful and important ideas ever developed in the history of science. Every question it raises leads to new answers, new discoveries, and new smarter questions. The science of evolution is as expansive as nature itself. It is also the most meaningful creation story that humans have ever found." - Bill Nye Sparked by a controversial debate in February 2014, Bill Nye has set off on an energetic campaign to spread awareness of evolution and the powerful way it shapes our lives. In Undeniable: Evolution and the Science of Creation , he explains why race does not really exist; evaluates the true promise and peril of genetically modified food; reveals how new species are born, in a dog kennel and in a London subway; takes a stroll through 4.5 billion years of time; and explores the new search for alien life, including aliens right here on Earth. With infectious enthusiasm, Bill Nye shows that evolution is much more than a rebuttal to creationism; it is an essential way to understand how nature works - and to change the world. It might also help you get a date on a Saturday night. "
Review Quote*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.-Dr. Eugenie C. Scott, author of Evolution vs. Creationism: An Introduction "Bill Nye has written a wonderfully clear and enjoyable explanation of evolution. 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."-Dr. Donald Prothero, author of Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters
