This new edition of the acclaimed bestseller is lavishly illustrated to convey, in pictures as in words, Bill Brysonís exciting, informative journey into the world of science.

In A Short History of Nearly Everything, the bestselling author of One Summer, confronts his greatest challenge yet: to understandóand, if possible, answeróthe oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as his 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. The result 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.

Now, in this handsome new edition, Bill Brysonís words are supplemented by full-color artwork that explains in visual terms the concepts and wonder of science, at the same time giving face to the major players in the world of scientific study. Eloquently and entertainingly described, as well as richly illustrated, science has never been more involving or entertaining.

BILL BRYSONís bestselling books include A Walk in the Woods, Iím a Stranger Here Myself, In a Sunburned Country, and Brysonís Dictionary of Troublesome Words. He received the 2004 Aventis Prize for A Short History of Nearly Everything. He lives in England with his wife and children.
