A Short History of Nearly Everything is a popular scientific discipline book by American writer Bill Bryson that explains some countries of scientific discipline.

He so explores the history of geology and biological science. and hints life from its first visual aspect to today’s modern worlds. He discusses the possibility of the Earth’s being struck by a meteor. and reflects on human capablenesss of descrying a meteor before it impacts the Earth. and the extended harm that such an event would do. He besides focuses on some of the most recent destructive catastrophes of volcanic beginning in the history of our planet. including Krakatoa and Yellowstone National Park.
What I liked about the book was that it was full of interesting and uneven facts. These facts were so curious and uneven because it was virtually impossible to work them out. What I besides liked about the book was that you were able to larn a batch about the scientist that have carried out great probes over clip. I think the merely negative about the book was that it was a long read and took a batch of clip for me to complete reading. it would be better if some of it was shortened down to do it quicker to read. I think the book is really mature and gives you a batch of item about every topic that it covers. I think that overall though the book is really interesting and I learnt rather a spot from it. I would state the book is aimed at 15+ ages.
