〤 Free Read Kindle @A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bryson) ⏖ Author Bill Bryson ⏻ 〤 Free Read Kindle @A Short History of Nearly Everything (Bryson) ⏖ Author Bill Bryson ⏻ From primordial nothingness to this very moment, A Short History of Nearly Everything reports what happened and how humans figured it out To accomplish this daunting literary task, Bill Bryson uses hundreds of sources, from popular science books to interviews with luminaries in various fields His aim is to help people like him, who rejected stale school textbooks and dry explanations, to appreciate how we have used science to understand the smallest particles and the unimaginably vast expanses of space With his distinctive prose style and wit, Bryson succeeds admirably Though A Short History clocks in at a daunting 500 plus pages and covers the same material as every science book before it, it reads something like a particularly detailed novel albeit without a plot Each longish chapter is devoted to a topic like the age of our planet or how cells work, and these chapters are grouped into larger sections such as The Size of the Earth and Life Itself Bryson chats with experts like Richard Fortey author of Life and Trilobite and these interviews are charming But it s when Bryson dives into some of science s best and most embarrassing fights Cope vs Marsh, Conway Morris vs Gould that he finds literary gold Therese LittletonAs the title suggests, bestselling author Bryson In a Sunburned Country sets out to put his irrepressible stamp on all things under the sun As he states at the outset, this is a book about life, the universe and everything, from the Big Bang to the ascendancy of Homo sapiens This is a book about how it happened, the author writes In particular how we went from there being nothing at all to there being something, and then how a little of that something turned into us, and also what happened in between and since What follows is a brick of a volume summarizing moments both great and curious in the history of science, covering already well trod territory in the fields of cosmology, astronomy, paleontology, geology, chemistry, physics and so on Bryson relies on some of the best material in the history of science to have come out in recent years This is great for Bryson fans, who can encounter this material in its barest essence with the bonus of having it served up in Bryson s distinctive voice But readers in the field will already have studied this information in depth in the originals and may find themselves questioning the point of a breakneck tour of the sciences that contributes nothing novel Nevertheless, to read Bryson is to travel with a memoirist gifted with wry observation and keen insight that shed new light on things we mistake for commonplace To accompany the author as he travels with the likes of Charles Darwin on the Beagle, Albert Einstein or Isaac Newton is a trip worth taking for most readers Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.
