Biology Everywhere takes a unique approach to connecting biology content with common experiences most people will likely share. The content is easy to understand and takes the reader on a fascinating personal journey into the sometimes unexpected ways we interact with biology on a daily basis

I love how Dr. Peffer integrates science with common, every day topics of interest to the average person. She really accomplishes her goal of making science less academic and scary and much more approachable and digestible. Scientific literacy is one of the most important issues for our society, and this book will go a long way in addressing that important topic. I will absolutely be recommending this book for my students and their families.

Biology Everywhere shows the reader that biology is quite the opposite of difficult to understand. Filled with relatable stories from the history of biology, along with personal and funny anecdotes, the book makes biology easy, directly relevant, and accessible to anyone. Packed with information, Dr. Peffer takes questions and scenarios we encounter in daily life and turns them into the fodder for biological explanations, never failing to draw the reader in. Anyone can read and learn from this book, from young adults to experts in biology.
