A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

I’m a lover of fiction. So the very fact that I made it through this scientific book is testament enough that it has a rich context. I like how Bryson makes facts tasty by wrapping them in an engaging story. However, I do feel that at times he crams too much data in. This is the book to read if you want to learn about the world from the point of its creation up until today. I now know all about craters and volcanoes and bacteria and, well, also about all of the stuff that we don’t know.
