A Short History Of Nearly Everything

A Short History Of Nearly Everything

by Bill Bryson

In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bryson follows his greatest challenge yet: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. From the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. The result is a profound, funny, and wonderfully clear and entertaining adventure into the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it.
