Publisher's Summary

In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Newman takes the listener 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.


What the Critics Say

"A fascinating and highly original book, the sort you pick up idly and the discover that two hours have gone by." (The Spectator)

Ideologically noble, but filled with misunderstandings and misrepresentations of evolutionary theory, unfortunately.
+Tediously unfunny at times.
