The most useful text book of all time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Really Short History of Nearly Everything (Paperback)
I loved the original, and always wanted a 'primer' to look up the facts I can't keep in my head. And here it is, in glroius colour and great language. When I saw this, I bought 2, intending to give one to one of my twin nephews and the other to my son (well, me, really). When they arrived, I carefully read one and ended up giving the twins one each as they shouldn't have to share this amazing gift. Bill Bryson is my hero now, and this book is a great gift and a fabulous resource.
