“Bill Nye, The Science Guy, single-handedly imbued an entire generation with a love of science. Herein he offers a novel recipe for how to harness that energy to save the world. I’m in. Are you?”
—Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History
“Bill Nye is the Science Guy, but he’s more than that. He’s the Mind Guy—he shows how our brains process information before they produce ideas. You know those board games that said they’re for kids of all ages? This book is one of those.”
“This is Bill Nye at his best—engaging us with his personal journey to discover science and interwoven with anecdotes of how science has shaped human history and society today. He brilliantly differentiates between those who dabble in information and scientists who think critically in their search for cause and effect. He concludes we can tap the collective brainpower of the world to solve the largest problems facing humankind. This is book is must-read for all.”
—Mark Z. Jacobson, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and director of Stanford’s Atmosphere/Energy Program
“Not since Carl Sagan’s The Demon-Haunted World has someone so elegantly shown how science is much more than figures and equations—it’s a way of looking at the world. Like Sagan before him, Bill Nye is a master storyteller, and in Everything All At Once he manages to weave science, history, politics, and delightful personal stories into a compelling treatise on the world and our place in it. Read this book and help change the world!”
—Michael E. Mann, Distinguished Professor of Meteorology and director of Pennsylvania State University’s Earth System Science Center
“In his delightful new book, Everything All At Once, Bill Nye reminds us why he remains the high priest of nerd cool, spreading his irrepressible zeal for science and wonder across every page. Tracing his story from early years idolizing Carl Sagan and Steve Martin to the success of his “Science Guy” TV show and from recent stewardship of the Planetary Society to advocacy for climate change activism, Bill writes with clarity and vision, offering a compelling call-to-arms for scientifically-literate citizens to change the world. As Bill puts it: “Information is the currency of the nerd perspective” and this book contains an embarrassment of riches.”
–Heather Berlin, Ph.D., M.P.H., Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai, and PBS and Discovery Channel host
“Our best teachers—in school, and later, in life—understand that learning is accomplished not by dragging students kicking and screaming to truth while we try desperately to stay afloat amid a sea of facts and figures.
Nobody “gets” this like Bill Nye, America’s national science-teacher-in-chief. In Everything All At Once, he smooths out the path to knowledge for us adults—all of us out here with families and jobs and attention span issues—like he did for us as children. He does it with plain truths, jolly good humor, and a respect for both his subject and his audience.
If you don’t like Bill, Bill, Bill, there’s something wrong with you. And if you don’t like this book, you’re not trying.”
—Michael Naidus, showrunner and executive producer, “Bill Nye Saves the World”
