    Neil Shubin is provost of The Field Museum as well as professor of anatomy at the University of Chicago, where he also serves as an associate dean. Educated at Columbia, Harvard, and the University of California at Berkeley, he lives in Chicago.www.neilshubin.com
    Details on a Major New Discovery included in a New AfterwordWhy do we look the way we do? Neil Shubin, the paleontologist and professor of anatomy who co-discovered Tiktaalik, the “fish with hands,” tells the story of our bodies as you've never heard it before. By examining fossils and DNA, he shows us that our hands actually resemble fish fins, our heads are organized like long-extinct jawless fish, and major parts of our genomes look and function like those of worms and bacteria. Your Inner Fish makes us look at ourselves and our world in an illuminating new light. This is science writing at its finest—enlightening, accessible and told with irresistible enthusiasm.

    • Excellent!

      I highly recommend this book for anyone who has ever wondered about just how we got where we are. This is a scientific book written by a scientist, but Shubin has done a good job using analogies and limiting the scientific jargon so this book is accessible to just about anyone. I am a biology teacher and I believe that this book would be of interest to just about any upper level biology student or biology teacher.
