Bill Bryson himself describes himself as a reluctant traveller: but even though he remains safe in his own study at home, he cannot contain his curiosity about the world around him.A Brief History of Almost Everything that is his quest to find everything that happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization – how we got from there, nothing at all, here, the United States.Bill Bryson is a challenge to take subjects that normally wore the wide pants of most of us, such as geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there is any way to make them understandable to people who never thought they might be interested in science.It’s not so much about what we know, about how we know what we know.How do we know what is in the center of the Earth, or what a black hole is, where the continents were 600 million years old?How do we ever understand these thingsOn his travels through time and space, he encounters a magnificent collection of surprisingly eccentric, competitive, obsessive and stupid scientists, such as the painfully timid Henry Cavendish who worked out many puzzles, such as the quantity of the Earth weighed down, but never bothered to tell anyone about several of his conclusionsIn the society of these extraordinary people, Bill Bryson takes us with him on the ultimate opening of the eyes of travel, and reveals the world in a way that most of us have never seen before.
