"Sharing a wealth of experiences and insight for teaching evolution, this is a book that I wish I had during my years in the classroom."

"While it is a shame that the teaching of evolution remains fraught, this 'selective pressure' leads to the emergence of exceptionally talented and dedicated educators, committed to the proper teaching of the most engaging topic in all human culture: our origin. These are their stories. This book contains charming narratives from the witty teachers that make evolution come alive in the bright young minds that will one day take their place as the parents, leaders, teachers, and scientists of their generation. We are so fortunate to have our children's education in their hands."
