Book Review: A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

My friend recommended this book to me. I love the concept: a recap of the history of the universe, the world, and then briefly us. It puts into perspective what part we play in the grand scale of evolution and forming of the universe. This is yet another book that reminds how egoistic we humans are. That we are just a blip and yet we value ourselves over the land we walk on. And if we ever come to be a spacefaring race, I fear for the universe and rest of the inhabitants (if there are any. I hope there is because “There’s bugger all down here on Earth!” – The Galaxy Song)

This is a good summary of what we know about the time and space we live in and the science behind it. But I was a bit disappointed as I have read about most what Bill Bryson introduced from various other books, so this wasn’t a eureka moment for me. That doesn’t mean this isn’t worthy of your time. I recommend this book. It is a good overall summary and explained in a way that is exciting and engaging. I had fun with the book as the secret is in the details. What I enjoyed the most was the ending where he let his voice to be heard.

Thank you for reading!


P.S. This is the last book review for today. I had a serious backlog. Let’s see how many books I read this week. I went climbing yesterday and dropped from 3 meters (9,8 feet), twisting my ankle. (Own fault. Should have let go and not try the move.) Luckily, it is not broken, but I’m moving with crutches. But the ankle should heal quickly, if I won’t act foolishly. So at least a week rest for me. My books where are you! Why are you hiding from me?

See you later!
