    This is the second book by Zehr, Becoming Batman was a good read, and Chasing Captain America is solid. Zehr uses his love of comic superheroes to explain some very intricate science (an overview, but still intricate) and presents some very interesting ideas about the direction of huma...

    3.5. Similar to Zehr's other books, but I liked this one more since it didn't drag out as long. ...

    I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. Probably the least probable of Zehr?s comic trilogy, the science within makes you want to believe that becoming Captain America is a possibility. The book is dry at times, in large part due to the abun...

    The hook of this book is the non-fiction exploration of the real world creation of the comic book superhero, Captain America. Chasing Captain America argues that we are in the process of evolving beyond natural selection by taking direct control of selecting our own traits through ...
