Essays. History. Science. Nonfiction. HTML:One of the world??s most beloved and bestselling writers takes his ultimate journey ?? into the most intriguing and intractable questions that science seeks to answer.
In A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson trekked the Appalachian Trail ?? well, most of it. In In A Sunburned Country, he confronted some of the most lethal wildlife Australia has to offer. Now, in his biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand ?? and, if possible, answer ?? the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world??s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involvin… (mais)

    Some Remarks: Essays and Other Writing por Neal Stephenson (themulhern)
    themulhern: The same sort of rollicking verve about science in "A Short History of Nearly Everything" as in the essay 'Mother Earth; Mother Board".

    Chasing Venus: The Race to Measure the Heavens por Andrea Wulf (themulhern)
    themulhern: Both books stick to the science adventure, and go rather light on the actual science. "Chasing Venus" is about the decade long effort to calculate the value of the astronomical unit; Bryson's book is more shallow and broad.

    erik_galicki: Weisskopf is more concise, more cohesive, and less anecdotal than Bryson. I consider Weisskopf a more enlightening but less entertaining alternate.

Uno de los mejores libros que he leido, cuenta de forma muy fácil y cómica la historia de la ciencia, como si fuera una novela.
Mi frase favorita "Resulta un tanto fascinante pensar que si tú mismo te fueses deshacienco con una pinzas, átomo a átomo, lo que producirías sería un montón de fino polvo, nada del cual habría estado nunca vivo pero todo él habrías sido en otro tiempo tú" ( )

I won't repeat what many others have already said about the overall content and style of Short History; However, I will add that the final chapter was surprising and painful to read. So if you've become tired of reading this book that just seems to go on forever and you put it down in the middle, it is worth picking up again and finishing. ( )

A fascinating journey through the history of the universe with Bryson's sense of humor entertaining us along the way. I enjoyed the summary of scientific knowledge, but the process of discovery and biographies just beg for further study. Why couldn't our school teachers make science this entertaining? ( )

This took me FOREVER to read, but now I feel so smart! ( )
  LibrarianDest | Jan 3, 2024 |
I'm a big fan of Bill Bryson (except for Neither Here Nor There...) and this one is a look at...well...nearly everything. His typical humor and commentary on science, math, literature, and culture run throughout the book. I actually pulled excerpts from the sections on the growth of chemistry for my students to read each year. ( )

The more I read of ''A Short History of Nearly Everything,'' the more I was convinced that Bryson had achieved exactly what he'd set out to do, and, moreover, that he'd done it in stylish, efficient, colloquial and stunningly accurate prose.
 
"Una breve historia de casi todo" explica como ha evolucionado el mundo para acabar siendo lo que es hoy. Explica cualquier aspecto de nuestro universo, desde el más recóndito al más conocido.
adicionada por Jaism94 | editarBill Bryson
 
The book's underlying strength lies in the fact that Bryson knows what it's like to find science dull or inscrutable. Unlike scientists who turn their hand to popular writing, he can claim to have spent the vast majority of his life to date knowing very little about how the universe works.

The physicist Leo Szilard once announced to his friend Hans Bethe that he was thinking of keeping a diary: 'I don't intend to publish. I am merely going to record the facts for the information of God.' ''Don't you think God knows the facts?" Bethe asked. 'Yes,' said Szilard. 'He knows the facts, but He does not know this version of the facts.'
— Hans Christian von Baeyer, Taming the Atom
