bill brysons writing skills are outstanding and this is his best book by far!this is practically a "science for dummies" which me at the age of 12 can clearly understand and even make good dinner conversation. bryson also has a fantastic sence of humour which he lets loose in this great book! 5 stars!
The author has a good sense of humor, is able to provide history in an interesting perspective, and is able to explain science in understandable language. This an interesting read.
I liked this book, but found it a little difficult to sift through as their is an intense amount of facts combined to make one book. It reminds me of the question and answer books that I used to read as a kid except for a much harder to follow version. The author, Bill Bryson, suggests he has spent the past 50 years getting answers to all the difficult questions we have. He has definitely accomplished this goal and has brought light to several questions that weigh on the minds of readers. I di like the comical illustartions and I think that they appeal to kids who decide to give this intimidating book a try.
This book is really interesting. It covers a huge variety of science topics and explained them in an easy to understand way. It had lots of great pictures, and the way many were sporadically arranged on the page helped to make the book to have an interesting look. It would be really neat for a grade school age child to look through to get inspiration to learn more about a specific subject. It is neat that Bryson wrote this version of his book "A short history of nearly everything" for a younger reader.
