A Really Short History of Nearly Everything

Did you know that every atom in your body has almost certainly passed through several stars and been part of millions of organisms on its way to being you? Or that if you are an average-sized kid, you have enough potential energy inside you to explode with the force of several hydrogen bombs?

A master writer tackles a mega subject in this short edition of Bill Bryson’s bestselling classic, which explores the history of science, the mysteries of time and space, and how – against all odds – life happened on the wondrous planet we call home! From incredible accidental discoveries to the great “eureka!” moments that have gone down in legend, get the science. Get the story!
