Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first of two Bill Bryson titles that have reverted to Transworld following the Doubleday publication of his latest title, "A Walk In The Woods. Made In America" takes a look at American culture and history. "A tremendously sassy work, full of zip, pizzazz and all those other great American qualities" Will Self, "Independent On Sunday".

Synopsis:

An entertaining, anecdotal look at the origins of language and ideas in the USA. Bryson explains why two bicycle repairmen from Ohio succeeded in mastering manned flight, why the assassination of President Garfield led to the invention of air conditioning, and many other improbable but true facts.
