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.

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.

Rose - April 2020

What a brilliant book!! I'm really into learning things and this book has it all. Bill Bryson has written this in a way that everyone can have a greater understanding of everything about our world and what has been before our time. The way he describes things has had me calling other people just to tell them something AMAZING that I've learnt from this wonderful book. I'm 26 years old and this book has really kicked off the beginning of further learning about the sciences and I'm so grateful I bought it because I plan on reading it more than once. If you have a curious mind then this book has a lot to tell you.
