it was amazing
bookshelves: science-fact, non-fiction
Read from August 15 to 22, 2012

No doubt out of date by now, this book is still packed with information, covering all sorts of physics, biology and chemistry, while being very readable and, often, funny. I especially liked the fact that it took an interest in scientists who had not been properly documented and whose achievements were attributed to others.

Very readable and easy to digest. The information isn't that out of date, and all of it together might be a useful overview of the history of the world. A lot of it I knew, but was pleased to know in more detail.
