A Short History of Nearly Everything

A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson This book really does cover a lot but I'd say it is more of a History of Scientific Discovery than anything else.Overall, the book left me with more questions than answers because he did cover so much different information. However, Bryson does do a fantastic job of helping make a variety of complicated topics more approachable and understandable. I certainly don't envy the job he had in writing this book and I love to learn.If you are at all curious about how our world works and our limited understanding of it then you should certainly give this book a read.
