Just as our own personal lives have been shaped by numerous random encounters, conversations, and opportunities, so has the history of life been shaped by changes to the cosmos, planet, and genomes.

Neil Shubin


The history of life is strewn with mistakes, chance, and natural disasters that have led to our very existence. Small changes in biology throughout the animal kingdom have led to revolutionary changes for all living things on earth. But how did we get here?

Neil Shubin is an American paleontologist, evolutionary biologist, and best-selling author. His work lays out centuries of evidence-based discoveries that probe the eternal questions about our biological past that figures like Charles Darwin struggled with and sought to answer.

In Some Assembly Required, Shubin explores the beginnings of our existence: Is our presence on this planet the result of chance or was it inevitable? Why are we here?
