Look at the world through Bill Nye's eyes, and your perspective will never be the same again. In "Everything all at once", an inspiring walk through science, history, and personal reflections, Bill shows us how we can regain the power of critical thinking in this uncritical age. We can attain enormous goals as a nation, as a society, and as citizens if we follow the right approach. By embracing our need to do "everything all at once," we can blend curiosity, patience, and creativity to examine problems from every angle and create change.
