Product Description

Great product!

Imported from USA

One of the world’s most beloved writers and bestselling author of One Summer takes his ultimate journey—into the most
intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer.

In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail—well, most of it. In A Sunburned Country, he
confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest
challenge: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and
ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how
we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s
most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices,
laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed
himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes
profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as
only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining.
