With Everything All At Once, New York Times bestselling author Bill Nye shows you how thinking like a nerd is the key to changing yourself and the world around you.
Everyone has an inner nerd just waiting to be awakened by the right passion. In Everything All At Once, Bill Nye will help you find yours. With his call to arms he wants you to examine every detail of the most difficult problems that look unsolvable that is, until you find the solution. Bill shows you how to develop critical thinking skills and create change, using his “everything all at once” approach that leaves no stone unturned.
Whether addressing climate change, the future of our society as a whole, personal success , or stripping away the mystery of fire walking, there are certain strategies that get results: looking at the world with relentless curiosity, being driven by a desire for a better future, and being willing to take the actions needed to make change happen. He shares how he came to create this approachstarting with his Boy Scout training (it turns out that a practical understanding of science and engineering is immensely helpful in a capsizing canoe) and moving through the lessons he learned as a full-time engineer at Boeing, a stand-up comedian, CEO of The Planetary Society, and of course, as Bill Nye The Science Guy.
This is the story of how Bill Nye became Bill Nye, how he became a champion of change and an advocate of science. It’s how he became The Science Guy. Bill teaches us that we have the power to make real change. Join him in… dare we say it… changing the world.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was at Beatrice, NE with a ton of other people (plus Bill Nye) to marvel at the beauty and natural wonder of the 2017 eclipse. It was the most profoundly beautiful thing I had ever seen in my life. If like me, you have looked up and wondered, gotten excited about something and learned, and then wanted to express this wonder to others in the hopes they will see the interest, definitely read this book. Additionally, unlike the other two people so far who have reviewed, I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who has actually read it.
I thought it was a pretty good read. It was more about seeing various topics through the eyes of science rather than being a book about one specific topic.
