Shortlisted, by Britain’s Royal Society, for the prestigious “Aventis Prize for Science Books.”
Winner, 2004 Outstanding Academic Title, Choice Magazine Winner, 2004 Aventis General Prize, which celebrates the very best in popular science writing for adult readers.

Bill Bryson is one of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers. In A Short History of Nearly Everything, he takes his ultimate journey–into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It’s a dazzling quest, the intellectual odyssey of a lifetime, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. Or, as the author puts it, “…how we went from there being nothing at all to there being something, and then how a little of that something turned into us, and also what happened in between and since.”

A Short History of Nearly Everything will be used at SUNY Cobleskill this Fall in their course PSCI 105 Environmental Science and Technology.
