Bill Nye’s “Undeniable” is unde’NYE’ably great!
Five stars! I loved this book – it should be mandatory reading in our High School curriculum.
Nye narrates his own audiobook, which I found particularly enjoyable as his vocal nuances and inflections help to communicate his intent behind the text as only the author can deliver with authenticity. Not only is the science presented in an easy to digest format, but it is laid out logically and with the tongue-in-cheek humour for which The Science Guy has become renown. I like that he respects peoples beliefs but does not remain silent when it comes to the influence of our children, for whom science MUST be correctly taught in our schools.
Nye covers every topic, describing the scientific process behind evolution (DNA heredity through natural selection), how much “deep time” it would take, and how we know through radioactive processes that the earth is more than old enough to allow for these processes to have occurred EXACTLY as we observe them.
This book is a powerhouse of irrefutable information that inexorably leads the reader to an unavoidable conclusion: Evolution is real, it happened, it “is” happening. I highly recommend this book to ANYONE who wants to learn something about the natural world we all live (and evolve) in.
