What the community says about A Short History of Nearly Everything
- "The book is great and I'd highly recommend reading it (especially coupled with a marathon of the Cosmos television series). There aren't too many more really engaging and entertaining reads about general science that I've come across. It's well worth your time. "
- "In this transcendent book, author Bill Bryson seeks to understand and explain some of life's biggest mysteries. What was the Big Bang? How did we get here? What led to the rise of civilization. Bryson interviews leading experts in their field, including archaeologists, scientists and anthropologists and complies the information into this entertaining and fascinating book. "
- ""A Short History of Nearly Everything" covers an incredibly broad variety of topics in a fairly approachable and interesting manner. It seeks to help people conceptualize a number of vast and profound events that sometimes are difficult to comprehend, and generally succeeds in doing so. It's an absorbing and enlightening read, in general.""This is a highly interesting read. I can't imagine anything more important than understanding as much as we can about the universe and where we come from, and I've simply devoured this book. I might argue that much of this information is theory, but it still certainly falls under the category of non-fiction. I love this."

I found the book was quite interesting with this large amount of information, you will likely find something that you'll want to explore even further. I thought that the author did a great job of covering both old and new subjects, the book is well written, you can see the amount of effort put in by the author. If you're into science, I would highly recommend checking this book out, you'll most certainly learn something new. "

Bill Bryson's interviews with current archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians as they discuss everything from the Big Bang to the current trends in science. It will keep you laughing and learning through the whole book. "
- "This book attempts to provide a quick but complete history of our great planet. This is not a novel but instead should be read in sections since there is a lot of information to digest. It could be a bit too much for the casual reader but it is worth the effort to read the entire book. "
