Your Inner Fish by Neil Shubin
Book DescriptionDetails 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."

Tells the story of how one creature's journey out of the water made the human body what it is today - and one man's voyage of discovery in search of our origins. This book reveals the secrets of our biology: why if we want to understand our limbs we should take a close look at Tiktaalik, the first fish capable of doing a push-up.
