A Really Short History of Nearly Everything, by Bill Bryson

A Really Short History of Nearly Everything

This is great! I read the book it's based on, Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything, several years ago, and this one takes the feel of the other book and condenses it into an illustrated kid-friendly tome. The drawings are reminiscent of the mammoth-machines in The Way Things Work by David MacAulay; very cartoonish but informative.

Highly recommend.
