Summary

Bill Nye has been the public face of science for more than 20 years. In Everything All at Once, the New York Times best-selling author urges listeners to become activists and agents of change.

Everything All at Once is an exciting, inspiring call to unleash the power of the nerd mindset that exists within us all. Nye believes we'll never be able to tackle our society's biggest, most complex problems if we don't even know how to solve the small ones. Step by step, he shows his listeners the key tools behind his everything-all-at-once approach: radical curiosity, a deep desire for a better future, and a willingness to take the actions needed to make it a reality. Problem solving is a skill that anyone can harness to create change, and Bill Nye is here to teach us how.

Each chapter describes a principle of problem solving that Nye himself uses - methodical, fact-based approaches to life that aspires to leave no stone unturned. He explains how the nerd mindset leads to a richer and more meaningful life; far more than that, it can help address hunger, crime, poverty, pollution, and even assist the democratic process. Throughout the book, Nye draws on his own experiences - leavened with his trademark humor and self-deprecation - to show how he came to think like a Science Guy, and how you can, too. By the end you will be ready to sort out problems, recognize solutions, and join him in changing the world.

Best Thing Bill Nye Has Ever Done!

I am a science teacher and a big Bill Nye fan from back to the Science Guy days.
In addition to the Science Guy show, I've seen much of Bill's TV and video work--Greatest Discoveries, Eyes of Nye, Bill Nye Saves the World. I've also read cover to cover his two previous books, Undeniable, and also Unstoppable. His latest book, Everything All at Once,
is the best thing he has ever done. The trademark puns and humorous expressions are all there, but this is definitely a cut above. I really like how Bill reveals so much about his family, upbringing, and personal life to explain where he is coming from. The writing is thoughtful, flows very well, and makes credible his impassioned call to action on climate change. As I got toward the final chapter, I didn't want it to end! Nerd or not, you need to read this book. Bill will inspire to you to help change the world!

Dares you into thinking inside the box.

Dares you into thinking inside the box.

...Is how I would put it.

In a time where many people search out far and beyond for answers, I for one, this book tells you that finding that answers to life begins with something as simple as tying your shoe correctly. Allow me to point out that this is not a step by step guide, but a memoir that parallels his application to life and bettering the world by unison and design.

I found Nye's insight uplifting and his delivery impeccable. Defying the defiance, bringing us back to square one to view life through basic laws and principles that govern the universe.

Bill Nye is awesome, but skip this one

I like Bill Nye and didn't want to give this a bad review, so I'm being as generous as I can with this review:

There really wasn't much to get out of this one. The only important thing to take away is that you should think critically and use rational thinking in order to make important decisions.

spectacularly inspiring, and very well read.

Bill Nye not only has many valuable insights for scientific minded people, he's also a great storyteller. Tales of his own life are just as enticing as his science lessons.

1st chapter is pure cringe, the rest is great!

1st chapter is pure cringe, the rest is great, so do what you can to get to the 2nd chapter before returning this.

Always a pleasure Nye

Another book with wit and humor. He is very down to earth and talks to you like a family member. But very informative book! with each of his books I walk away learning so much more about life.

It was alright.

Started as a great message of ‘Don’t take things at face value.’ 3/4ths of the book encouraged open mindedness and further research beyond media including several examples of how he did so throughout life.

In the last quarter his tone changed in both verbiage and message. Verbiage changed from open, ‘consider this’ type phrasing to ‘I declare it is so.’ The message changed to ‘these people disagree with me, they can’t be open minded.’

I agree with 95% of his message but the end still started to make the rest seem disingenuous.

A great read that covers important issues!

Loved it! Everything Bill's talks about in this book are real issues that we, as a global civilization, should be taking on.
