    What do Apple CEO Steve Jobs, comedian Chris Rock, prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, the story developers at Pixar films, and the Army Chief of Strategic Plans all have in common? Best-selling author Peter Sims found that all of them have achieved breakthrough results by methodically taking small, experimental steps in order to discover and develop new ideas.

    Tad Davis says: "Useful approach, not for everyone"
    "Great content, narration could be better"

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Genuinely "Everything""

    Story

    This book takes you for a tour through every pure science that you ever read about: Bill Bryson weaves hundreds of what seem to be disparate facts into one coherent story. He gives you perspective on how much we actually know about the world we live in, yet how insignificant this knowledge is in the grand scheme of things. Richard Matthews' narration takes the book to the whole new level as he talks about everything from astronomy to oceanography to the origins of leaded petrol.

    Must listen. "Un-put-down-able".
