Bill Bryson's Short History of Nearly Everything

One of the finest science books I have ever read!

I began this book to take a break from my usual thriller or management books. This was recommended to me by one of my cousins. Never did I think this would be such a pleasure to read!

From the beginning of the book to the end, Bryson keeps us engaged, interested and fascinated in this journey from the birth of Universe to today.

My recommendation, read this and let every child and student, with slightest interest in Geography, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and even Mathematics, read this book.

What a high class way of generating interest in topics otherwise clogged with formulae that don't get inside your head or postulates about which you keep wondering...how the hell did scientist xyz think of this!

It is a one book wonder!
