Elicits my favourite reactionary tag yet: “unbelievebly stupid”

This is a great book that sums up the knowledge humans have attained through science and is not an attack on religion as people claim. If you have the patience to stick with this, he explains his stance and the ideas behind the evolutionary theory, but one must actually read the whole book not just some of the book. This book is not for people looking for university level physics theory. See your closest research univeristy for that.

I think this is a great book. Easy to understand and very captivating.

Not especially well written. He does give an interesting description of deep time involving a map of the continental US showing a path beginning in San Diego and ending in Boston. The beginning point represents the age of earth, 4.5 billion years ago, and the shore near Boston represents the sum of human history on earth. He also gives a lot of examples of the variety of species that have come and gone throughout time.

Unconvinced. Bill Nye presents his argument in his easy style aimed at the grade 7 or 8 student. This means that it is important to not muddy the discussion with possible alternative ideas. Just make your statements as though everyone knows they are the latest in truth. There is much discussion about change within species but he never gets to species making significant new creatures. The world is full of wonderful creatures which have no obvious evolutionary forebearers. He does not acknowledge any difficulties explaining these at all. Lots of bold statements about the history of nature and some snide remarks about "science deniers", lots of guessing how things might have come to be but very little real details about any well established facts of evolution. Mostly bluster, I think. Not one of the Science Guy's better books. He is better at describing the science of everyday things.

For the novice who wants to no more about the science behind climate change and human history, this book is necessary. Bill Nye, takes complex scientific topics of today and throughout history and makes them digestible for the "common man".

For a general (uneducated) readership, not much new here.

In this book, Bill Nye explains history of the formation of the planet Earth 4.5 billion years ago and the beginning of life (bacteria) perhaps 2 billion years ago, the existence of dinosaurs perhaps 500 million years or so, with human history just in the last several thousands of years. Darwin developed the theory of evolution just 150 years ago and scientists have been developing knowledge about it with rapid advances made in the last few decades. The ideas are quite complex, but Nye presents the information simply enough that anyone with a good high school education should be able to follow most of the material in this book.
