    In A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bill Bryson takes his ultimate journey - into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It's a dazzling quest, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization.

    "Fantastic, but get the unabridged-- it's available"
    Overall

    This was a great book in every way...the topic, the writing, the narration, etc. I find this kind of stuff extremely fascinating and the author makes it even more interesting with his subtle sarcasm and quips. He starts out with some of the same cosmology material that's in Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of time but makes it a little more understandable and then gets down to more earthly things like geology, evolution, chemistry, and biology. He amazingly ties it all together giving you a wonderfully new perspective on human life on the planet Earth. Read this BEFORE (not instead of) the Stephen Hawking's book.
    My only disappointment is that it is now available in the unabridged format and I will have to use another one of my credits to get it after spending one on the abridged version. No more abridged books for me, at least none by this author. I just hope the narrator is as good.
