Oct 21, Manny rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. From the Big Bang to bruson life on earth, Bill Bryson does wonderful job of breaking down complex theories and concepts to their essential message: That really is some feat.

We have a good brain, with which we can devise strategies, and we have hands with which we can fling or brsyon hurtful objects. The atomic particles that we now know as Quarks were almost named Partons, after you know who.

bryskn If you are an average-sized adult, you contain within you enough potential energy to explode with the force of THIRTY very large hydrogen bombs. Here is how the book begins: Bill Bryson has also written several highly praised books on the English language, including Mother Tongue and Made in America.

His daughter Grete died in while giving birth to her first child, and two years later her twin sister Emma died the same way, after having married Grete’s widower.

There is a degree of story-telling that Bryson utilises that makes the dee smooth and easy to follow. When name-dropping, Bryson always gives a short description of the person in question; if mentioned earlier in the book, he drops in a quick reminder to the reader.


The combination of these factors can only lead to an intensely unpleasant reading gudo, which may discourage the reader historis making new Amazon purchases for days or even weeks afterwards. The story of Earth and the people who made the critical advancements. Bisogna solo comprenderli bene prima di accingersi a spiegarli. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from hiwtoria being nothing at all to there being us.

Like all science book, they get outdated fast but this one is still holding up, at least for now.

You have got to be fucking kidding me. I will probably tell the other half that I gave it 5 stars: In one place he describes particles with “spin” as actually rotating about an axis they are not.

Bjll 14 participants under his leadership were to establish three permanent stations from which the thickness of the Greenland ice sheet could be measured and year-round Arctic weather observations made. Stunning in scope and execution. I feel like he wrote this book for me and I hope he writes 10 more just like this.

Parton with her, uh, cosmic mammaries bouncing quade the atomic nuclei is VERY unsettling. The author’s excitement and enthusiasm for the subject matter drip from every page.

To those nerds in the audience — myself included — don’t think your degrees mean you can pass this one over. There’s so much here you’ll want to have a copy on hand to refer to later. This is the book for you. Wilson expressed it with unimprovable brevity in The Diversity of Life: Thorough, humorous, engaging, and educational: Seriously, I wish I could invite him over for tea and scones and just listen to him read all afternoon.


It has been conclusively demonstrated that literature is far older than the Kindle; books already existed thousands of years ago, which were the direct ancestors of today’s e-publications. Though I found a few errors—and suspect the average grad student in one of a number of the subjects covered could find a few more—the book is nevertheless a praiseworthy stab at science writing for the layperson.

Some of those particles must occasionally rain down on Earth, so if they were dangerous, we would have suffered the consequences long ago. View all 4 comments. Una vita umana, forse, neanche un istante.

Breve História de Quase Tudo

The book covers almost all branches of science, Space, Earth, Environmental, Life, Chemistry and Physics introducing us to the pioneers of each field. He says that all living creatures contain hox genes; he omits Alexander Friedmann and George Gamow from his description of how the Big Bang theory was developed; when talking about Darwin and Paley, he doesn’t seem to be aware that Natural Theology bikl one of Darwin’s favorite books and had a huge influence on him.

Re all 4 comments. It really helps the lay reader navigate these complex boll. Bryson scratches below the surface to meet the individuals who played prominent roles yet went unrecognized. There were some sections where the detail did become a little heavy — the account of plant life being categorised lumbered on interminably — but on the whole the pacing felt spot on. Quite a few of them!

Your fans will love it.
