BOOK REVIEW : A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING


We have books separately on science and humanities. In fact there is no such division and it is only made for our convenience in understanding. Imagine a book is in front of you knitting  everyday science and humanities together as an interesting volume. 

The same happened here. An author caught your imagination and wrote a book  answering  to all haunting questions !

The book is US's National Best Seller. New York Times described it "Destined to become a modern classic of science writing'.

Bill Bryson's book " A short history of nearly everything' is a book which must adorn your personal library as it has a treasure trove of information relevant to current needs.

The book has interesting stuff all about everyday science from Universe to Earth, Atom to Life and what not. To put it in one line about the book: It travels through time and space to introduce us to the world, the universe and everything. The UK edition describes the book : Deserves to sell as many copies as there are protons in the full stop that ends this review (at least 500,000,000,000). 

The book is an answer to Bryson's own curiosity about the world around him. He patiently puts to pen the answers to his quest  from Big Bang to the rise of civilization. It is a book  in layman's language and  must read for all ages !
