I found the next section of Your Inner Fish to be very factual and involving in the topic of commonalities with other species. I also liked how Shubin titled some of his chapters with a sense of humor (“Getting Ahead ” talks about the heads of different organisms). These chapters taught me a lot of new scientific terms that I have never heard of before and taught me some interesting facts about paleontology. It also refreshed my knowledge on some of the topics we discussed in biology and embryology, like our formation from a single cell to a placenta, eventually leading to a fully developed human. These chapters focused mostly on anatomical structures, therefore gave me a larger scale of comparison with other creatures as to gene comparison. I really enjoyed learning more about our relationship with other organisms in this section and continue to wonder how Shubin will continue to educate us in the other half of the book. Thankfully, Shubin explains everything in detail to leave little room for questions.
