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.

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.
