This is the best book I read lately! It is both an entertaining book but also informing. Bill Bryson travels through history. From the “Big Bang” to the different specimen of mankind, from electrons and other tiny elements to the first life forms. I bought the book because of the title and wondered what it would contain. After reading it I must say that the title if fairly good. This book indeed covers alot!

Some people called this book “Short entertaining bio’s of 500 scientists”. This might also be right and that is what a I also like about it. Sometimes Bill covers more about the scientists instead of their achievements. It covers backgrounds, how things we’re discovered etc…
