Description

Now revised and updated to take in the major scientific developments of the past decade, A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson’s classic quest to find out 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. Winner of the Aventis Prize for Science Books and the Descartes Science Communcation Prize, it became a huge bestseller, and remains one of the most popular science books of all time.

Bill Bryson’s challenge was to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there wasn’t some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science.

On his travels through time and space, he encounters a splendid collection of astonishingly eccentric, competitive, obsessive and foolish scientists, and takes us on an eye-opening journey through time and space, revealing the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

  1. Dheeraj Gaur (Verified Purchase)

    Be prepared though to being overwhelmed because there is a lot of information in this book, with references to other works. This book is best read in sections allowing yourself some time to think about what you have learned; and I’m sure you are going to learn at least a few things.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to understand what an amazing place our planet is and life that exists on it.

  2. Manoj Sahu (Verified Purchase)

    Although the book is old, it doesn’t looks like used book. It seems to be one of the unsold stock from a book store.

  3. Rahul Kapoor (Verified Purchase)

    I am happy with the purchase. Condition is satisfactory.

  4. Gopi kannan (Verified Purchase)

    Condition of book was better than what I expected. I think its great that you can actually ask for actual product image before buying.
