The Universe Within

Discovering the Common History of Rocks, Planets, and People
Written by Neil Shubin | Narrated by Marc Cashman
How have billions of years of astronomical events shaped human life today? This accessible and compelling audiobook incorporates “seemingly every… science” (Wall Street Journal) to answer that question. “This book is, quite literally, cosmic: a profound story told with Shubin’s usual clarity and passion” (Oliver Sacks).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

From one of our finest and most popular science writers, the best-selling author of Your Inner Fish, comes the answer to a scientific mystery story as big as the world itself: How have astronomical events that took place millions of years ago created the unique qualities of the human species?

In his last book, Neil Shubin delved into the amazing connections between human anatomy-our hands, our jaws-and the structures in the fish that first took over land 375 million years ago. Now, with his trademark clarity and exuberance, he takes an even more expansive approach to the question of why we are the way we are. Starting once again with fossils, Shubin turns his gaze skyward.  He shows how the entirety of the universe’s 14-billion-year history can be seen in our bodies. From our very molecular composition (a result of stellar events at the origin of our solar system), he makes clear, through the working of our eyes, how the evolution of the cosmos has had profound effects on the development of human life on earth.
