A Short History of Nearly Everything

A Short History of Nearly Everything
Bill Bryson

In A Short History of Nearly Everything, beloved author Bill Bryson confronts his greatest challenge yet: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as his territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us. - Talk of the Nation, May 21, 2003
Jupiter Science Review

“Stylish [and] stunningly accurate prose. We learn what the material world is like from the smallest quark to the largest galaxy and at all the levels in between . . . brims with strange and amazing facts . . . destined to become a modern classic of science writing.”

The New York Times

Hey Bill, did you actually read all these books? I am quite impressed. This is the one I especially wanna read and the documentary "Pacific Century". The book I can buy on amazon, but is there any way I can borrow the documentary from you?
