Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller, but even when he
stays safely at home he can't 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
Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off
most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there
isn't 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.
