Bill Bryson "A Short History of Nearly Everything"




Possibly the greatest non-fiction book I have ever read. Engrossing, informative, and really funny. Incorporating books like this into secondary education curricula would go a long way to get young women and men excited about careers in science again. You need to read this book. Now.
