Comments: Super entertaining, super informative and lots of fun to read. Classic Bill Bryson with a science focus.
What to expect: As the title goes, a ‘short history of nearly everything’. It is one of those books that makes learning fun and moves seamlessly (for the most part) from one topic to another. One big realization that hit me was how all things in our universe are interconnected..
A note – While great for expanding perspective, I don’t remember a lot of specifics from the book but yet remember how it increased my curiosity about inventors, inventions and ideation in itself.
