What an incredibly informative book!! My list of things to read up on is now a staggering size.
This (along with Radio Lab) is going to be compulsory listening for my children - I don't believe a classroom education comes close!
Also, a British narrator is a big plus :)
Than you Bill!
Loved every minute. There is so much intreguing info I could listen to it again!
I wish Dr. Bryson would update this work. I have read it several times and it is always fascinating, full of facts and the "behind the scenes" stories mostly lost to history. A fun and informative read.
Great insights peppered with humor and information.
Very very good!
The narrator does an excellent job and the book is fill with amazing stories.
This book was great! I feel like I would be a great trivia partner with all the facts I just learned :) loved it!
I’ve listened to this book a few times and learn something new every time.
Sadly, I have yet to hear another reader use the same intonation and other vocal effects that Bill Bryson does. The book is wonderful.
This book was fantastic to listen to. If only science had been this interesting in high school! I found myself looking forward to getting into the car so I could continue with the story. Narrator had a great voice as well. If you have a casual interest in science I think you will find this as entertaining as I did.
Great to instruct the mind that wants to know?
I recommend this book for all curious minds that want to know more than what they know without becoming stuck in boring data. I am enjoying the knowledge and questions raised, most of all the historical record and our present knowledge. I hope you will too.
This book is a must for all! It was great. The narrator is
excellent. Both my husband and I loved the educational information.
I have both the abridged and unabridged versions, although I prefer the abridged version. It provides a fascinating overview of scientific discovery, and pieces it all together in an excellent way.
I have listened to this book several times, and enjoyed each time thoroughly. If you are interested in how things work, this is a must.
This is a fascinating and interesting "story" of us and our world. Very entertaining and full of facts that weave a tale. I was sorry when it ended.
