Reading the book, What’s the Difference by Marc Tyler Nobleman, was really fun.  The title and cover page do a good job at explaining the purpose of the book.

Here are a few examples:

  • Reptiles vs Amphibians – Reptiles have lungs and they can’t breathe through their skin.  Amphibians can absorb oxygen through their skin and they may or may not have lungs.
  • Fruit vs Vegetable – Fruit is the ripened ovary of a flowering plant.  Vegetables are any other edible parts of the plant.
  • Morality vs Ethics – Morals are what we believe regarding appropriate behavior.  Ethics is the formal study of morality.
