A Short History of Nearly Everything

Bill Bryson

Overview

What's the most fascinating thing about our world to you? Is it space, other planets, galaxies far far away? The depth of the ocean and the mysterious, alien-like creatures that live down there? The genetic makeup of all of the species around us?

Even people who don't show a particular interest in science and history have one or two things they're absolutely smitten by – and it's not surprising. There's so much incredible stuff going on around us, it's hard to not be starstruck, if you think about it.

A Short History Of Nearly Everything tries to explain (almost) all of it. At least as much as we know. Bill Bryson has done a tremendous job at it.

"If you were to pick yourself apart with tweezers, one atom at a time, you would produce a mound of fine atomic dust, none of which had ever been alive but all of which had once been you."
