  1. A friend of mine recommended this book knowing that I like science I m used to reading about the sciences in single topics This book surprised me in the amount of effort the author took to go through book after book of different sciences, both old and new, and proceeded to connect the dots into several cohesive stories about our home, planet Earth, and its residents The biggest surprise is how little we truly know about both and just how much luck was involved that both exist in their present fo [...]


  2. I have just completed Bill Bryson s A Short History of Nearly Everything for the second time I am quite certain it will not be my last reading I cannot think of any other single volume book I have ever read that was as informative, entertaining, and broad in scope as this classic Not having excelled in science, nor been much interested in it when I was younger, this gem is a massive refresher course on everything I ever learned about science, and then some.Bryson moves seamlessly from one sweepi [...]

  5. Bryson s writing is addictive but not at all nourishing, it deadens the mind in a haze of anticipation of what comes next , like a pulp detective novel The book is less about the history, meaning and amazing potential of human understanding, than it is about the author s ability to tell entertaining anecdotes.Bryson ambles the pathways of science, observing the remarkable scientific phenomena along the way, without feeling particularly deeply about anything, as he searches out anecdotes of human [...]
