In his 2003 A Short History of Nearly Everything, author Bill Bryson moves from the small steps of A Walk in the Wood to huge leaps as he explored the overarching questions that possess the world's most advanced scientists and mathematicians. Tackling issues as far-reaching and momentous as the Big Bang, the rise of civilizations, and the future of the universe, Bryson sought out the experts best qualified to give him authoritative answers. His modest, inquisitive nature and entertaining writing style made this profound quest a pleasurable excursion—and also a resilient bestseller. In this special illustrated edition, all those vast questions and consciousness-raising answers loom even larger.
