A Short History of Nearly Everything- Bill Bryson

Image result for short history of nearly everything

Thirsty for knowledge, this book's title is pretty self explanatory. Bill Bryson shows off his phenomenal writing in a pure non-fiction book that will make you feel like a genius when you tell your friends what you know. Not only does this book have subtle humor, but Bryson can make large sciency equation and theories, easy to comprehend and easy to understand. I have learned what lightning and wind is (down to the sub atomic level with electrons and protons) and how small a proton is. This book explains theories from the beginning of the universe, to Charles Darwin, to the destruction of the ozone layer. Basically everything that will make you smart in one book. This book also has stuff for scientists as well, because scientists pick up all of the jokes. I recommend this book for people older than 15, but I read it at 12 and it was still cool and funny. Go get this book and learn stuff!
