Customer Review

on 2 August 2006

So much fact & interesting stuff is packed into these pages without ever taxing the reader that you just can't put this book down.

How does Bryson cover so much of this stuff so quickly and keep every single page interesting and understandable? This was my 1st "layman's" science book some years ago and led me to my current interest in cosmology, although it could just as easily lead to an interest in history, geology, biology, Palaeontology or chemistry to name a few of the subjects covered. Unsure what type of lay science book to read? Read this one and decide from there...
