Sparked by a provocative comment to BigThink.com last fall, and fueled by a highly controversial debate with Creation Museum curator Ken Ham, Bill Nye's campaign to confront the scientific shortcoming of creationism has exploded in just a few months into a national crusade. In this book, he expands the points he has made, and claims that this debate is not so much about religion versus science, as about the nature of science itself.
With infectious enthusiasm, he reveals the mechanics of evolutionary theory, explains how it is rooted in the testable and verifiable scientific method, and why it is therefore a sound explanation of our beginning. He argues passionately that to continue to assert otherwise, to continue to insist that creationism has a place in the science classroom is harmful not only to our children, but to the future of the greater world as well.

Bill Nye's case for evolution is Undeniably good
I didn't read the print version, so I can't really make a comparison.
Nye lays out overwhelming evidence from all aspects of science, not just biology. Learning, for instance, that the reason we are able to create vaccines by studying how they interact with other species has to do with the similarity of our DNA and because we have a distant ancestor was fascinating and mind blowing.
Bill Nye's reading of his own book is great. Nye has a natural confidence that comes through in his voice over, and you can hear his passion for the material in his voice. He takes an academic tone, like sitting in a classroom while he outlines the case for evolution, but it never comes across as boring or preachy.
