The Universe Within

Annotation
A University of Chicago paleontologist and evolutionary biologist, Shubin discovered the fossilized Tiktaalik roseae ("a mosaic of primitive fish and derived amphibian"); his best-selling Your Inner Fish parallels human anatomy with the structures of the fish that first wriggled landward. Here he goes one step further, explaining how the universes 14-billion-year history is reflected in our very bodies. With a 100,000-copy first printing and a ten-city tour.
