New book: Kenny Fries, "The History of My Shoes and the Evolution of Darwin's Theory"

(Wow, I didn't think I'd get that whole title into the space allowed.)

Time to crank up my Amazon wishlist--according to the press release:
Kenny Fries tells two stories: the development of the theory of 'survival of the fittest,' as articulated by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, and the history of his ever-changing, made-to-order, orthopedic shoes....Although only the 'fittest' may survive, Fries learns that adaptation and variation are critical to survival. What is deemed normal, or even perfect, are passing phases of the ever-changing embodiment of nature in our world.
Kinda puts a whole new spin on going to the orthotist for a "fitting," eh?
