Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over a century ago, the Social Darwinists appropriated Darwin's name but left most of his theory behind. The Evolution of Everything describes the struggles behind Darwin's theory of evolution and the schemes of those who misapplied it.  It also shows why a more nuanced reading of that work—especially the concept of selective pressures—helps us understand many natural, social, and economic processes.    

Synopsis:

The Evolution of Everything argues that Darwin's theory of evolution was misapplied and demonstrates its applicaton to modern societies.

I found this book interesting, amusing & fun. I retain information better with a story, and this author is a great storyteller. Loved the stuff about bananas, and the Mars landers.... I am always on the lookout for a story, glad I found these.
