About This Book

"A Short History of Nearly Everything is a quest, the intellectual odyssey of a lifetime, as this curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization." To that end, Bill Bryson apprenticed himself to a host of the world's most profound scientific minds, living and dead.
His challenge is to take subjects like geology, chemistry, paleontology, astronomy, and particle physics and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people, like himself, made bored (or scared) stiff of science by school. His interest is not simply to discover what we know but to find out how we know it.

About the Author
With a wacky worldview -- and wanderlust -- that garners him comparisons to everyone from Chaucer to Dave Barry, Bill Bryson entertains readers around the world with his travelogues and riffs on the intricacies of language.
