- A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING
DetailsBill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller, but even when he stays safely at home he cant contain his curiosity about the world around him.A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to understand everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Brysons challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isnt some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science.The ultimate eye-opening journey through time and space, A Short History of Nearly Everything is the biggest-selling popular science book of the 21st century, and reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: With his warm, sharp, witty and accessible books ranging from travel, through language, to history and science, Bill Bryson is one of the UKs best loved writers of non-fiction.
