Reader A Short History of Nearly Everything
A Short History of Nearly EverythingIn Bryson's biggest book he confronts his greatest challenge to understand and if possible answer the oldest biggest uestions 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 nothin Good grief if I had even one textbook half this enthralling in high school who knows what kind of impassioned ologist I would have grown up to be I hereby petition Bryson to re write all curriculum on behalf of the history of the worldI would run across things half remembered from midterms and study guides and think You mean this is what they were talking about? You have got to be kidding me It's never condescending always a joyIn fact what I loved most is the acute childlike sense of wonder seeping through the pages How fantastic little we know about the world in which we live All the great scientific leaps fallen through the cracks all the billions of leaps that will never be made every scientist who with an amiable grin shrugs to say I don't know We don't know Who has any idea? The world is a magically baffling enchanting place and after nearly everything there is infinitesimally

Those science phobes out there who freely admit their near complete ignorance of the subject should do themselves a favor and buy a copy of this book No don't get it from your library There's so much here you'll want to have a copy on hand to refer to laterTo those nerds in the audience myself included don't think your degrees mean you can pass this one over As hyper specialized as science has become it's refreshing as hell to step back and take a look at things with new eyes While there's not a lot here I haven't encountered before there's a lot of information about how our current theories were developed that I didn't knowAlso? It's heartening to read about the social ineptitude blind spots and how utterly incompetent many of these scientist were in other aspects of life Makes me feel better about never finishing that PhD at least I have a lifeThorough humorous engaging and educational what's not to like?
