The Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution

by Robert Newman - £11.99  Freight Books (Cargo Publishing) (2015)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9781908885531 | ISBN 10: 190888553x

In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Robert Newman takes the reader on a whirlwind tour from caring, sharing vampire bats to intelligent slime-mould; from pacifist baboons to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman; from the invisibility cloak of the Hawaiian bobtail squid to Francis ‘DNA’ Crick’s belief that life on earth began with alien spaceships.
 
The only comedian ever credited in a paper published in the science journal Nature, Newman explores how stunning scientific breakthroughs have turned received ideas of evolution upside-down.
 
Now a BBC Radio 4 comedy series, the Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution is based on the stand up show Robert Newman’s New Theory of Evolution.
