If we're supposed to be evolution’s greatest creation, why do we have such bad knees? Why do we swallow and breathe through the same little tube? Professor of Biology, Nathan H. Lents wants to know too and endeavours to makes sense of such evolutionary quandaries. Despite our tendency to view ourselves as highly evolved and well-engineered creatures, we are in fact designed pretty badly. The human body is one big pile of compromises, but in this it is also a testament to humankind's greatness. Lents shows us that humans have so many physical flaws precisely because we are very good at designing our way around them.
