A short history of nearly everything

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. The ultimate eye-opening journey through time and space, it is the biggest-selling popular science book of the twenty-first century, and reveals the world, in a way most of us have never seen it before.
