A Really Short History of Nearly Everything
I first saw this in a book store in Adelaide, Australia whilst out there visiting my son. And guess what .... I was hooked straight away! I never really liked history, Science or Geography at school as I was always busy and enthralled doing my Maths with my bessy mate! A lot of the time I wish I had listened more at school, as in general knowledge I would class myself as self-taught since leaving school just through everyday activities, but now I have found the best book in the world, it tells me just enough about things and in an enjoyable way that I'm sure they will stay with me now and always!
Thanks a lot Bill Bryson - I will defo be watching out for more of your books xxx
