In Robert Newman's Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia Of Evolution, acclaimed comedian Rob Newman guides listeners through a unique A-Z of evolution that takes in everything from altruistic amoebae to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with a postal worker.

Piecing these fragments together allows Rob to correct some major distortions of Darwinsim, and to rejig the theory of natural selection in the light of what we now know about epigenetics, mirror neurons and The Flintstones.
