A Short History of Nearly Everything

A Short History of Nearly Everything - Bill Bryson "Best survey of science book out there"

After listening to this book, you will feel like a scientist and think of yourself as understanding our place in the universe like a true intellectual. Bryson just knows how to explain difficult concepts across all of the science disciplines. This is a great first book for someone who is interested in reading other science books or just ending their quest with this book. My cheap self was reluctant to get it because of the two credit price, I'm glad I let my spendthrift self take over.

The book does more than just talk about the science it also delves into the personalities involved with the great discoveries and illustrates how some of our greatest discoveries came about through the perseverance of smart people.
