    To better understand the inner workings of our bodies and to trace the origins of many of today's most common diseases, we have to turn to unexpected sources: worms, flies, and even fish.

    Overall

    Mr. Shubin's humanity comes through very vividly in this book. I found myself sharing his almost child like excitement of scientific discovery. The human failures he makes in his journey to acquire the skills necessary to do his research efficiently and professionally is also revealed.
    Any person interested in science needs to include this book in their collection. The scientific method is very evident here. Propose a hypothesis from already known information, define the structure of an experiment, and execute the experiment. Consequently, Tiktaalik is discovered. Tiktaalik fills in one more missing link in the theory of evolution.
    Mr. Shubin combines a number of scientific disciplines to support his conclusions. His knowledge of anatomy is amazing. I found it a fun read.
