A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson
A Short History of Nearly Everything

NickVanD, May 28, 2008

I am reading Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything. When you open the book to the first page the first thing that is made clear to you is the fact that A Short History of Nearly Everything is a book about science that was written by someone who knew, before writing it very little about science. This means that the book is very easily understood by people who struggle with more conventional science books.
Another interesting feature of the book is that it seems to shift from topic to topic very flawlessly. I am awed by Bryson’s ability to transition from topic to topic flawlessly. Another feature of this book is it’s focus on not just the science of things but the people involved with the discoveries.
