Imagine a world without fire. There would be no cooked food, no artificial light and no way of keeping warm in a cool climate.

It enabled us to invent the steam engine, the internal combustion engine and the rocket. Where would we be without it? View more info

ISBN: 0552997048

Condition: Good


Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller: but even when he stays safely in his own study at home, he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to find out everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thou...

On the Origin of Species outlines Charles Darwin's world-changing theory that life on Earth had not been brought into being by a creator, but had arisen from a single common ancestor and had evolved over time through the process of natural selection.

Forced to question the idea of the Creator, mid-nineteenth century readers were faced with Darwin... View more info

As we prepare for the arrival of the next millennium, the need to find a truly sustainable way of living is urgent. But before a new way of living can be defined, the non-negotiable needs all humans have ... View more info
