Formed: Paperback assumes more to to the people like to of them, has the habit partorisca learn roughly science for fixating in a subject the time, and resultant submerged (and very often stray) in a technical slang and intricacies. This book surprised in a quantity of endeavour Bryson has taken partorisca spend for book with which rid different sciences, both old and new, (of physics, chemical, geology and a lot of more) and connect some signals to several cohesive histories in our house, Tierra of planet, and his residents.

The title of a book is a lot of apto.un breadth of the history covered thus book is massive (as well as weighty!) Of a first fraction of the second of the existence of a Universe to some recent discoveries of a 20th century. Obviously it has empty insurances (for this a 'almost'), but Bryson easily points out of that does not know . It is a sincere history of a scientist accomplishments of an earth inception. It is the must read for each human, as you rid you the feeling to burst that it is pride the participant in the travesa adds of the humanity. Although a the majority of amazing characteristic is a balance among some functions have touched of casualidades in many of these discoveries, and a unyielding human determination to identify the ash of zone, and look for knowledge consistently.

The lies by force of a book in his capacity to transmit a marvel (and complexity) of science to a half layman - mainly reason Bryson, he, has does not melt scientific and so only recently there is familiarised with these marvels. More than just it testo condensed of salient, factual information - Bryson door this the life whilst describing an imperfect scientific process that surrounds (reason an information has been looked for after, likes scientific honed his approximations to produce wildly the estimativas wrong to one has calculated precisely imagines use today, and because information or lie of possibility out of our take), as well as amusing episodes.

Another force of this book is that to approach he of a POV of the no-scientific, Bryson feeds our wonderment and comprising to grow like this information fluidly disguised in Bryson energetic, quirky, familiarised and humorous prose seep out of the each chapter, leaving travesa at the side some of one the majority of prominent (and some of a less prominent but equally brilliant) scientific in his obsessive investigations. In fact, background information that I loosely agreed of the mine schooldays and now find that a bit of context and intrigue that Bryson adorns him with accident the impressed in my alcohol for ever.

If it love your girls to grow up with inclusos the modicum of recognition for our planet, then take this book and read the to them every night - again, and again, and again. In mine dress this book would owe that substitute a free bible in Disks of Island of the Desert!

Formed: Paperback has read this two times now. Once when I took it in the first place, and now again several years later. A first time, has maintained partorisca disturb my saying of woman 'can believe this ...' And it has been he has said his some episode of a book. Some second time have maintained my happier woman for posting endless 'can believe this ...' Gone in in facebook.

This book gives science the human face, and the humorous one in that. Calm will not exit of this when being the scientist adds, but will have obtained certainly the utmost overview of the scientific subjects a lot a lot of, and street a enjoyable subject more than a too stuffy textbook. I Like him, also of calm probably seat a constant impulse to share some gem read again to the long of a way.

Formed: Kindle Edition A book is the fun overview of the to to subjects likes him-gliela biology, physical and ask the plot of questions your professors of institute probably any one: As and when it has done the people in the first place measure an earth? That has done figure of the people out of the DNA is?

Surprisingly, the plot of some discoveries now take for has admitted was a lot of controversial his time. Some were like this far at the head of his time that the person has concerned a lot and some facts have been re-discovered the century later.

Partorisca me, a book was the way adds partorisca appreciate an existence of a universe, an earth and life. It was also a lot inspiring to see that on some centuries, there was always the few people with house and devotion. Some are spent of the decades in the question until they have done finally the breakthrough. We owe the plot to these people.

Also recommend a book has the boy in big-pupil, around an age of perhaps 15. A book could do pupil more interesting.

Formed: Paperback the writing of Bryson is adictiva but at all feeding, cushions an alcohol in the haze of anticipation of that comes afterwards?, Like the novel of detective of the pulp. A book is less in a history, meaning and potential that surprised of human understanding, that is in the capacity to say of an author that entertains episodes.

Bryson ambles A pathways of science, remarking some remarkable scientific phenomena to the long of a way, without feeling particularly deeply roughly anything, like rings was more episodes of human discovery. Some washes of what whole on the without never really taking passionately has involved. Of course, some facts are quite amazing, like this there has to that well sure the sense of YOUR DAAAAA!, it Likes him the look the magician pulls more rabbits out of hats.

This in spite of, a general sense of detachment leaves a book that feels superficial and uninspired. There is the current of the interesting facts is a thing with which another without anything really taking ours to drive in the personal level, emotional, besides the blip. It is not inspired never to look for something inner new he, so only to remark and movement on. It is as if casually it is remarking scenes by means of the window of train, without never really that worries in that is taking place, besides the simple well, that really is that it surprises, is not the., Then moving on to one after what really interesting .

Be the wise step for Bill Bryson to move of the travesĂ­a writes the science. It has it witty facilitated and eloquence quite different another in a field of popular science.
Has read this to cover to cover in a course of the few months. Thoroughly It enjoy It a factual appearances of science. Bryson this in spite of tries to weave in an evolutionary explanation for more than things in this book. These frames for the travesĂ­a quite baffling like this often informs in a book to egoistic scientists bickering and struggling was paralizaciĂłn further his name and reputations.

Alive this book. I have possessed both hard and soft rear versions and has had included a CD narration (but has lost one of a CDs) as now the have the kindle and that travel to plot has bought them a Kindle version... And ... Big deception... An audible version also. Reason the deception? Reason a kindle audible is not related for Bryson but for some 'law-or' that is the complete disappointment . It was so that it looks forward to Bryson has listened soul humerous vouce and a voice that is used so only has nettled. So only 3 stars given partorisca the 5++ book partorisca star

Books of Bryson of Bill is almost always excellent and ossia any exception .

This gives an overview of some sciences of his origins to his current state (or at least a state was in when a book has been published). There are a lot of books of vetoes it looked in a phase but Bill Bryson spend the only accessibility that coming from/come from, in my opinion, a way ameno a human element to a subject. Some chapters are mostly categorised for science - geology, astrophysics, chemical, biology, palaeontology etc. This in spite of some sciences, enough inevitably overlap from time to time inner some chapters and follow a flow of chapter to chapter more than dividing them until it subjects any one has joined.

The majority of the books of science will quote a discoverer of the particular law or a postulator of the particular theory but treat them to a large extent like this objects or almost the sidebar to a theory he. Bryson Extracted some people for behind a science like presents, with defects, shots, ambitions, contention, and rivalry that has gone to form a science of the way in general has developed. For main a reader by means of a science in a book to present some personalities that shaped remain them @@@subject accessible same by means of some of some less intuitive zones and reasons Bryson is not the scientist there is constantly the feeling of all when being the little has bitten lost in joint.

The history the scarce frequently is amusing, almost always witty, and from time to time laugh out of strong hilarious. Reading this book in a train , can ensure you, causes the pocola researches to be directed your way if, taste is a indiscreet chuckler, sblacker, and prone to of an occasional guffaw.

To write one in-description of the depth of this book would require far more the time that am prepared to commit. Everything will say is that they are in 4th reading. I read it 3 times in hardback and now moved to Kindle, which is a lot of gain how is the quite hefty take, so that it says something in a book like the source of entertainment as well as the source of information.

Highly recommends to choose on the copy yes is like the directly read-by means of or likes to choose the on, dipped down reserve to dip and went. Work a lot very like this neither.

My favourite book - in any edition achieves hard or soft. This one has a profit of some photographs and diagrams that so only adds to an entertainment of a @@subject @@@subject that is to contest. The, for one, loves it and can not take enough. Always a first book in my stock exchange of travesĂ­a.

Has read this originally press the few years done, and was impressed like this with a content and his delivery that has expected until it was in offers him to it gustanuno and-reservation for the buy again. I enjoyed it so much that the king-has ignited my amour for science, and is then be in to read a lot of some books and authors that Bill Bryson quotes in him. Have enjoyed particularly some works of Professor Sykes, and James Watson.
A book is writing of the layman point of view, and does not require to know roughly science for the bed. It is easily accessible and amused to read, and was very impressed with ow a lot groundwork Gentleman Bryson has to that it has done in the investigation. It is I triumph it of literature - especially factual literature - and spurred me to read a lot his travelogues (the notes Of A Small Island was my preferred).
A very written and entertaining book.

Honradamente Does not think can do this justice to reserve here and am sure another reviewers will be much more state eloquent that I, but has has to that say this book is absolutely brilliant. They are always state interested in science and a world-wide around , but know frustratingly pocolos of an enormous quantity there is to know and marvel in. A lot that knows comes from/comes from to look some a lot of wonderful documentaries that it is available these days, but this reserves really paste one something. Incidentally, it is it grieves half way by means of reading it, but has been thank you to write the description in all the chance. They are already be awe-has attacked several times and there is a lot of laugh-the moments was strong as well as several OMG moments (OMG has not gone enough an expression has used, but takings drift of mine ). A history that that maintain 'know' is coming roughly is that it interests enough in him. Some hardships that the past scientists have given support to find some responses have looked for is incredible: some that that life of transmission breakthroughs and another taking it bad in spite of all - a lot has had so only any idea. Then some chapters in Volcanoes and earthquakes (which is second that has read to maintain) calm mark @to give you that a planet is a film of big disaster that expects to go was. An ash @subject has been very stimulated and has excited can say you. Funnily Enough, I have had this book that chairs in the shelf for years - in a cast of things to take around the reading, but thought it could be the bit of the dry bed. It was like this bad there, but a timing could not have been better. A chapter in earthquakes speaks roughly Tokyo; to the equal that seats in a place to fulfil of 3 tectonic stuff which have been building pressure on some last 80+ years of a last quake - dictate '... Finally it is joined to snap ..... And the one who knows those that people could die.'. A book has been written in 2003 (I think) and has read that admonishes in some consequences of a disaster concealed has to that done befallen Tokyo. Yes, an earthquake has not been a main cause of death, but dip a rolling of ball. He so only spent home a reality that was reading - is not all the supposition and hypothesis - which so only done a chapter that is still in of the volcanos even more scary. Ossia An informative, exciting and fast-paced read. Thoroughly Recommend to any with an interest in this glorious and awesome universe and a life that occupies it.

Bryson Has written a lot highly readable works, and this was a prime minister I bought (I follows now an addict). It knows his material and has the wonderfully accessible way to present an amazing variety of subjects. You could take that it reads no of reader in this material. Highly recommend.

This type is the encyclopaedia to walk . Every time I listen to this audio chooses on something that has not listened before. They are the professor of physical withdrawal this in spite of studies a @@@subject to the equal that wants to maintain up with new information, but this man taught so much. Highly recommended.

Be of an artistic and philosophical character, has has does not have to that never a lot of interest in science, but once had begun reading this book could do not dipping down, and read the one of an extreme to the another in record time. Bill Bryson all interesting - is Physical , Astronomy, Pharmaceutical, Biology or Geology - leaving calm for turns awestruck, fascinated, amused and to good sure entirely engrossed. Has a easygoing, friendly fashion that mark (almost) all comprehensible and interesting.

A book left with a quite shady earth of raw planet that is existed for aeons first of the humans are gone in a scene , will spend to the along with which are missing, and that anything all some religions of worlds say, is not a culmination of an evolution of a universe - simply a species the one who only raisin to be 'any by means of' Or for the dipped more bluntly: some earth of dinosaurs has maintained the base of still roughly 70 million years (obviously in harmony with a world-wide around the), the modern man is existed for roughly 2 million years (any in harmony with a world-wide around ) calms really think a human race can do he partorisca included other million years? Material no...

Enjoyable Reading vacacional. A book chooses on top of any time and gone back to while it feels likes without loosing a plot. Inevitably Volume bamboozled for a flow of numbers the one who punctual result without senses, but is a lot readable this in spite of. Although Bill Bryson, like this always, resupplies an easy bed a subject @@@subject is managed with respecting to add and, in of the parts, is has thought enormously causes. If more it is in a room while you are reading this will be necessary to be you very disciplined to resist was relaying an amazing information this book develops on almost each page.

Ossia Attacked he of mammoth . Bill Bryson speaks roughly all that say like this is here today. A book covers a creation of an earth and everything in the, using knowledge of cosmology, geology, physicist, pharmaceutical and uploads more sciences.
Uses his usual, easy to read, way and explains some very difficult concepts in the level with that the majority of people would be comfortable.
Some researches that has to that quell'gone to this book is enormous, how is aimed in an enormous bibliography. Ossia Where have the question he so that has too much information in time. I have found some discoveries some old plus and of the most interesting histories that a recent information, like the concepts the new plus is often more controversial and more difficult that comprise.
Has very different, but related, subjects some duquel have more interest in that another and I sometimes found I skimming in the few pages. Often quirky the histories are mixed in and these have spent always my attention behind.
Would suggest to read a book in of the sections with pauses by other books as it conceal will give your brain more time to think in that that has read you.

Count it scientific of Bryson of almost everything is Carl very looked late Sagan fantastic book 'Cosmos', which is similarly like this pleasing to read.

Is not the science in the depth adds and a lot could find a lot of some subjects and information to be of enough the low level. This in spite of has like this information in here and in such an accessible level that thinks it will be to please the bed for almost any one. Bryson Starts in a start and in the each phase of life and of the science gives the fascinating accounts of his progress. This comprises information in of the discoveries scienziathe and a prominent historical scientist that has done these discovered, as well as scientific known minor. It presents this scientific history in the way that Bryson so only could: with talent and charm. Ossia Something concealed separates the book of Bryson of Sagan is, and is the factor that the book of frames Bryson even more accessible and easy for everything to read. To produce the book that science of frames so much brilliantly that interest without being too heavy whilst a same time very pleasant is attacked the worthy.

A book can be dauntingly big to some, but is fill with so much enlightening information that a reader will be drawn of page the page, and in an end ready to start with on again before @I give the to you.

A book is like this easy to result immersed in and like this fill of the educational information thinks it would do a book of ideal of school text. If the book of Bryson was to be comprised in a national curriculum would have future generations of the less has bent boys to believe mumbo-jumbo, and therefore better prepared to enjoy a beauty and importance of science.

Can not recommend this book highly enough.

Can not be the scientist, but Bill Bryson sure knows like this to turn some facts to something concealed a lot desiccate your brain, is understandable, and in a lot of chance, the plot of fun.

Be quickly read to sleep with a lot of some materials of reference Bryson sourced of. Our Gentleman Bryson has directed to take me by means of his book without the yawn.

Would recommend this book to any with a enquiring alcohol. You recommend this book to all the professors that Take direct. It recommends it to all the people of all age those who are vaguely interested discovers more in this odd, little planet we perch apon.

Also strongly recommends any that loves this book to exit and take them Kindled immediately so that they do not owe that clutch this all-the too bulky pound while spending container or in the train.

An Excellent read!

One of one the majority of riveting no-the books of fiction have read. It stimulates your thought and is full of alcohol-boggling facts and writings with this touch of BB humour. They are now half way by means of my third read. I have bought several copies of of the this for my friends. Fascinating Material.

Is the plot of information to read like this calm can not read this anywhere, has required to be in the calm room without distractions, dipped that down in 200 pages, reasons 1. It is quite exhausting to take in so much information and 2. I took 2 month to take that far and to be sincere was itching to read something more. But another that really that interests

the evolution of book and the history described of humanity and the view of natural science in general. Easy to read, full of interesting and often curious historical facts and histories, said with good portion of talent. An also shouted book questions deeper that human being on Tierra of planet and causes further thinking roughly life in noting wider.

The history the scarce is one the next plus is coming to the real-life Hitch-hikers Drives to a Galaxy, a tentativa ambitious and to a large extent has achieved the bridge a yawning lagoon among dipping audience and a cutting flange of science to the long of an impressive variety of epistemological salients. Another before Bryson has explained and the concrete disciplines popularised, but pocolos have tried such the wide cloth.
Bryson&8217;S the talent is the perfect tool with that to lit a plus of occasional confusions, uncertainties and idiocies of science. And although sometimes we lose an author in the thicket of complexity usually the explosions was again before some eyes glaze on.
My question is that never of then has discovered gross and inexcusable factual errors in his leading book &8216;Notes of the Small Island&8217; they are not never able state the enough of confidence Bryson&8217;s word. I owe that confess that with this experience taken behind on this feeling of book like the visitatore to the geological museum the one who strongly suspects his drives to be a perpetrator of a Piltdown hoax of Man.
On in the first place read, any error of entity has jumped went in, although I remark that another more learnt has informed his presence. If he so that it is the shame , and totally unnecessary: although an author can no any point is them and cross t is is surely a lot besides a talent or purse of an editor to employ the sub-editor with a knowledge to exert the red pen.
In that said the one who, for any with an aversion to slang and equations those who simply wants to know where some men in of the white discharges have to that this book is the must .

Enjoyed this, I like his fashion of writing - humorous and factual. Nizza Short sections and there is the good flow among subjects.

You want to read in the current scientist has thought roughly a lot thinks utmost and small? Then read this book. It is finally readable. It dips so many things in perspective. His use of words is good and his capacity to simplify the complex subjects is surprising.
Would suggest that any that wants to go to university to study the science would owe that it fishes the before they go. If any one wants to comprise anything of black holes (if any one can) to the quantum physics then read this book.
Well value the bed.

Bill Bryson has written the telephone directory amuses and accessible. For any with an interest in general science, ossia the must has read. Some histories are writings in a anecdotal way and finalised once gasping so only that small an atom is, will be LOLing in some exploits of scientists of the time spent of longitude. A for real wonderful book.

Well the humour written , good and amazing history with a truth launched in too much of boot! The enjoyed really and the fact that can be the heavy row of the subjects feels considerably less difficult.. Thank you.

For an American Bill Bryson has the very open and inquisitive approximation to the majority of things .
His book is light easy reading . A book 'Ours Tongue of Mother ' is almost like this as well as the book of Winston Churchill 'English in Villages of Speakers'. Well recommended reading. A book 'History The scarce of Almost All' is the light entertaining idea to be an Encyclopaedia with excellent illustrations. It can not say that it suffices to consider Bryson!
4 / 5
A lot of enjoyable. I have begun so only the only reading Bills the books of Bryson (any sure reason have taken like this along) and now can not taking. It results it is like this well like all the world has said. I am doing my way by means of his backlist. Amur His wry humour. They are sure he could do a book of pleasant telephone.

An entertaining and the full exhaustive book of enlightening observations and current facts roughly almost everything. The recommended reading to everything ages the one who loves to learn the tad more in current scientific knowledge. I feign to read it a lot times so only for an entertainment of him.
5 / 5
This book is tedious and rambles on in naturalists and the chemists have not listened never of and will not listen never of again except in the book has taken.
Probably A lot goes in for a lot of opposition.

He delves to one the majority of detail of minute in these characters that, whilst has had his place in history for groundbreaking the discoveries are turned to the subject of abject drudgery.

Has taken quite bored with him and the year in closing has not finalised.

Would not take too excited in east take and there are better books there to fill your time to read

is debating yes to purchase this book then so only can say do like this! It is to reserve it which will not disappoint . I have read he long, any reason is in rodeo, which is distant a lot a chance, but reason flows like this easily. Like the graduate of natural sciences, in fact a lot of moons, has loved always know more roughly, well everything! If you are of a calm character even then will enjoy this book. It is some I kings-read again in a future.

My dad recommended this book of the mine so much has a lot of lovely conversations roughly the science and the creation etc. Is the very interesting bed if you are to all that - and an author do not blind calm with terminology too much scientist. It recommends.

According to descriptions of Amazon, has to have at least 20 words in this description. 'BUY THIS BOOK' is so only three words. 'BUY THIS BOOK NOW' is four words, as it is taking more afterwards. 'BUY THIS BOOK NOW INCLUDED REQUIRES in your LIFE' is 11 words and concealed is exactly like chair in this book. My copy headed in United Kingdom, has been taken to France, is then be in Ireland and Indonesia, and to be sincere does not have any idea the one who has it now, but needless to say is a class to reserve all the world will want to take loaned 'when you are finalised'.

BUYS THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!

Full of odd facts (obviously), and second that it can say that the bits is beds was the mine is science -material based more than just general knowledge. Some of him (in atoms and material) is quite that blows alcohol. Bought the second hand-held copy, but is in excellent condition. You can say that it is state first bed, but otherwise is perfect. Arrived in good time. Very happy.

Ossia One the majority of incredible book has read. It was not that a calm author maintain entertained by means of some occasionally subjects quite heavy but entertained was as well as when finalising far more informed and connoisseur roughly 'Almost All'.. Had so much in a book I to good sure read to again in the date the late plus so much can them touch even sooner down a pub! Without the doubt this would have to that be compulsory reading inside a school curriculum. I am not exaggerating when I say reading this by means of all the schools would improve future society.
Has a calm reservation would have to that shabby and read in yours lifetime ossia.

It have to that be in each curriculum scolare secondary.

A first book I bed for Bill Brysonwas the present that has read with thrilling all a year 1927 in . It is like this well I have downloaded this one which still am reading I so that it find it quite weighed in disposal. Extracted an origin of a universe(s) and timelines of billions of the years and the scientists have not listened never of. Still a writing is excellent and will read it all but he probably will take more the then usual time.

An initial chapter could be has bitten it dipped to some he so that has the plot of big numbers in him, but concealed is all you really need to think- that they are so only massively almost the incomprehensible and calm numbers a lot really has to him comprise.

This book surprised in a quantity of endeavour Bryson has taken partorisca spend for book with which rid different sciences, both old and new, (of physics, chemical, geology and a lot of more) and connect some signals to several cohesive histories in our house, Tierra of planet, and his residents.

The title of a book is a lot of apto.un breadth of the history covered thus book is massive (as well as weighty!) Of a first fraction of the second of the existence of a Universe to some recent discoveries of a 20th century. Obviously it has empty insurances (for this a 'almost'), but Bryson easily points out of that does not know . It is a sincere history of a scientist accomplishments of an earth inception.

I have read this two times now. Once when I took it in the first place, and now again several years later. A first time, has maintained partorisca disturb my saying of woman 'can believe this ...' And it has been he has said his some episode of a book. Some second time have maintained my happier woman for posting endless 'can believe this ...' Gone in in facebook.

This book gives science the human face, and the humorous one in that. Calm will not exit of this when being the scientist adds, but will have obtained certainly the utmost overview of the scientific subjects a lot a lot of, and street a enjoyable subject more than a too stuffy textbook. I Like him, also of calm probably seat a constant impulse to share some gem read again to the long of a way.

A book is the fun overview of the to to subjects likes him-gliela biology, physical and ask the plot of questions your professors of institute probably any one: As and when it has done the people in the first place measure an earth? That has done figure of the people out of the DNA is?

Surprisingly, the plot of some discoveries now take for has admitted was a lot of controversial his time. Some were like this far at the head of his time that the person has concerned a lot and some facts have been re-discovered the century later.

Partorisca me, a book was the way adds partorisca appreciate an existence of a universe, an earth and life. It was also a lot inspiring to see that on some centuries, there was always the few people with house and devotion. Some are spent of the decades in the question until they have done finally the breakthrough. We owe the plot to these people.

Also recommend a book has the boy in big-pupil, around an age of perhaps 15. A book could do pupil more interesting.

It is not roughly history in general or the others to things likes them to them a bit arts or culture. Obviously it have to that direct on something, but a title is slightly misleading if I do not know in a book before. Bryson Uses very interesting and useful analogies partorisca dip things the perspective, and has fun small histories in scientists and his experiences. A partner has said that this book was partorisca struggle to take by means of, but has learnt something new of the each page here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sometimes it has too home given to a particular area and any to another, but obviously this goes without saying when there is so only an author. It is not everything entirely elementary, and calm could find to take wikipedia or google partorisca information more basic in sure subjects partorisca comprise the complex ideas advance dipped for Bryson. In general, it is really the book that there will be you marvelling in your own existence and a world-wide around you, the must read partorisca any with an interest in science!

The writing of Bryson is adictiva but at all feeding, cushions an alcohol in the haze of anticipation of that comes afterwards?, Like the novel of detective of the pulp. A book is less in a history, meaning and potential that surprised of human understanding, that is in the capacity to say of an author that entertains episodes.

Bryson ambles A pathways of science, remarking some remarkable scientific phenomena to the long of a way, without feeling particularly deeply roughly anything, like rings was more episodes of human discovery. Some washes of what whole on the without never really taking passionately has involved. Of course, some facts are quite amazing, like this there has to that well sure the sense of YOUR DAAAAA!, it Likes him the look the magician pulls more rabbits out of hats.

This in spite of, a general sense of detachment leaves a book that feels superficial and uninspired. There is the current of the interesting facts is a thing with which another without anything really taking ours to drive in the personal level, emotional, besides the blip. It is not inspired never to look for something inner new he, so only to remark and movement on. It is as if casually it is remarking scenes by means of the window of train, without never really that worries in that is taking place, besides the simple well, that really is that it surprises, is not the., Then moving on to one after what really interesting .

Top Customer Reviews: Underland: A Deep ...

Rating: 4 out of 5 with 38 ratings
4 / 5
Robert Macfarlane once again directs a way in writing of science/of new character. This time directs down, researching a world-wide deep under our feet by means of grottos, mines, subterranean cities, put of funeral, helar -holes and more, re-creating a darkness, claustrophobia and alcohol-bending effect to visit this underlying and mysterious plant. It weaves History, psychology, geology, literature, mythology and nail-biting suspended with a characteristic amour of tongue and adventure that marks his revelations both accessible and inspiring. It is the book that asks to be reread; in time Macfarlane can overburden his readers with an incessant flow of ideas and facts although his narrative structure remains quite strong to spend all spear in him. I found staggered for fundamental appearances of our existence in this planet that has had has not considered never. Finally a book is the door in the world is so only a bit conscious of, chooses follows Macfarlane down a rabbit-holes and crevices physically, or consult some the a lot of references resupplies for studio further. Macfarlane Can have appeal of mass but extracted all his work like pertinent academic investigation and, to his credit adds, does not take never an easy street.
Be in to good sure that a lot reserves to explore the alike territory will follow heat in some heels of Underland - but Macfarlane comprehensible and engrossing the volume dips the regulate that little it match.

Robert Macfarlane is always the writer whose arrival of books to know the plot more in a world-wide alive in that when you have begun. The eye that opens perspectives in our world. This rids even more so much that his another treating like this he a underland.

My reason to give it 4 is that it is sadly has left down for his poor illustrations. If never the book has cried was for the fully illustrated edition ossia one . An odd map that locates the places have mentioned would have helped also.

Macfarlane Is one of my favourite authors and has the wonderful way to give the sense of 'put' in his descriptive writing. In a doing for six and the half years, this book is very researched and a lot informative. An author can be the small 'wordy' in time, any no like this with this offering and diversions to the external works am very balanced, like the reader is not taken out of some salient points. It say there is not any earth shattering inner of new information some pages, but perhaps a lot will be new for general readers. Ossia Certainly any one my favourite book for Macfarlane, and read the all, but is the good bed, although I have found some better chapters that another. Perhaps you are claustrophobic for the character will find some of the some difficult adventures to read likes them the author crawls by means of some coffin like some spaces and in a chance of adventures under a city of Parigi asked so that the reason dipped by means of him, but guess taken all the classes. It seats some impressions has added to a sense of a be of the zones has described. Well lovely reading but no quite value five stars to my alcohol.

Has to that be sincere. I have bought this book because rings something to read in the travesía of long train. An illustration of coverage is of interlocking stir in the decadence. Neither a title “Underland” neither a sub-title “A Travesía of Deep Time” has given any real indication of the like a book was roughly. And it has had the tagline roughly entering a Underland by means of a riven trunk of a tree of old ash. All has suggested to be the novel of fantasy , and that that would be the fun read in the train very along travesía.
Is not the novel of fantasy. It is the book in an author that goes down to some depths of an earth in several parts of a north hemisphere to discover that it is under an earth in that tread.
Is the very long book . I have had a very simple question with him. I have not seen a point. This was partly because it was very difficult for me to see a connection among some varied sections, different of a book, averts of a fact that each section has treated something concealed is under our feet are in the particular part of a world.
One of some questions that this book has shouted is the simple a: Reason go under an earth? That is our purpose , Ossia Reason a book is the travesía of deep time reason goes back far besides a historical record to first ours apparition like Desmond Morris, in the famous book, has called “An Ape In of the skins”. I have been the grottos for shelter of a time and to protect of predators. In the Then begin to bury our death. So much, this book dips a task to explore an Earth underworlds to the equal that exist in myth, literature, memory and fact.
An author explores a Underland of Europe and Greenland, visiting grottos in a Mendips, the mine in Boulby in Yorkshire, Epping Forest, some catacombs of Parigi, a subterranean river in a Carso in Italy, a Slovenian Big Earths, a Lofoten Islands in Norvegia, glaciers in Greenland and the ease of storage of nuclear waste in Finland. Some of these underlands is natural, some of them are man-has done. Everything of them requires an author to be aimed around for people those who am expert in this particular terrain.
Is difficult to see that some links among these places is, averts of the obsession of an author with going under a surface of an earth to discover that it is down. Perhaps ossia some links so only . Perhaps it is missing something.
A book is a lot of-written. Each episode is described well. Some of some marvel of histories in a sanity of humans. Reason do the people go to some catacombs of Parigi (essentially sewers) so that poden party? Reason do the people risk his lives to discover exactly where some flows of subterranean river among his disappearance and king apparition? Reason do people abseil to some cracks in of the glaciers? A response is, reason poden.
But rest with an essential question in this book. Reason has been written? And I confess that I do not know a response.

Any praise, neither number of stars, fully can transmit a quality of this bed of this the majority of talented of writers. I have devoured all his leading books and was so only the little sceptical that this one could be the little too niche for my flavour - that bad was. In spite of concentrating in subterranean locations by means of a ball of Greenland to a Mendips, is a light that Macfarlane spear in a human condition that does these reservations like this appealing. A chapter in a grotto-riddled Karst zone of North East Italy and Slovenia , with some horrors that has taken place there on two world-wide wars, is among one the majority of powerful there is not reading never. His fashion to write is very unusual in one first splits of a book : I have cut to stab sentences, which as always, the frames think. My only caveat was that this relatively the youngster of man familiarised search having taken the series of risks quite severe in writng this book, likes to go down deep to the glacier. This does a tender conclusion that involves his edges of 4 years all an emotional plus. I can not expect for his next work.

Is the complex read, but ADD, and can hardly dipped the down. So many things that has known no, and like this knowledge to glean. I seat that it is changing a way that chair roughly a lot of things, especially an earth under our forest and forest. It has not finalised still, but the spectacular (and sometimes deeply disturbing) travesĂ­a, like this far.

In the bed that all of Macfarlane is other books, and really loved his, has been moment to this title to exit for some time. Well value a wait. Writing with Macfarlane usual involving way. Prose That often verges on poetry. Informative,and the new concepts are written in the way that does not speak down to a reader, but gives some new ideas in the clear and included way. And like this usual with Macfarlane books, is drawn quickly in and time whizzes the past and a lot of pages are eaten in the suns that seat. Also, abundance of insightful notes and a lot of listings of tests and papers to hunt was and pursue if ossia the one who apresamiento your elegant. For me, ossia an if some a lot of joys of the Macfarlane book: you link to other authors and other books and information. Take the copy of him like this reserves now and begin your travesĂ­a dark down to a Underland.

A description read soycFarlane was the travesĂ­a very good writer, now is simply the writer very a lot of' - That is up.

An exceptional book with excellent and terrifying the histories have said of the masters craftsman.

Our past is written under our feet, is building our own sub the earth so that a future am likely. Ignoring a @@subject to store radioactive waste for 10,000 year, included then still was lethal.

Highly recommended.

In the bed the McFarlane is has has lost Words with my little sister, I ventured was partorisca read more than his work and listened in a popularity of this book. It is the different orientation the writing of character, perhaps a lot totally new terrain, but MacFarlane has the way with words that summons on a magic and wonderment of a world-wide underland. I am writing this description much more late after active read a book, but remain with some flavours, textures and sediments of the deep undermine of my own organism that anxiety partorisca discover underlying and far places under a skin of things. An end is a lot touching and hope of offers so that legated leaves behind partorisca our terrestrial inheriters partorisca find and considers. An only tickle has is that it can have had more illustrations that was in colour. It have been happy to having paid partorisca more this, and has sustained a reading partorisca have visuals, but then this leaves a partorisca use his own imagination.

Has bought this in the whim. I (quite shamefully) never listened of this author before.

If   you are, or is not never state, to hike, climbing, caving, or the old external adventure so only simple, then would recommend that it check this fella' was.

Ossia The travesía a lot poetic to the that MacFarlane described as 'deep time'. It is also a thoroughly enjoyable book roughly character, people & of place. 

(Art of good coverage for Stanley Donwood also ... Until it read a book, Donwood could not comprise reason MacFarlane has loved to use this image. His apocalyptic apparently, a ball of light represting the nuclear explosion.)

There is enjoyed this immensely in spite of him when being the little different in fashion to his leading works. It is for real the wonderful , articulates and inspiring. Some experiences draws on is unusual and has thought to cause. It deserves 6 stars and hopefully more prizes of literature.

Has loved this (almost like this like this Some Old Ways). Macfarlane So only takes more and more involving a plus along continuous in. There is toned down his sometimes pulling, rests of prose to the equal that has matured like the writer, and just masters the very impressive row of material (both experience and cultural history). It knows any the one who read that the one who has the claustrophobia and he hardly could take by means of some passages this in spite of, be warned. I have found he unputdownable.

The title of a book is a lot of apto.un breadth of the history covered thus book is massive (as well as weighty!) Of a first fraction of the second of the existence of a Universe to some recent discoveries of a 20th century. Obviously it has empty insurances (for this a 'almost'), but Bryson easily points out of that does not know . It is a sincere history of a scientist accomplishments of an earth inception.

The lies by force of a book in his capacity to transmit a marvel (and complexity) of science to a half layman - mainly reason Bryson, he, has does not melt scientific and so only recently there is familiarised with these marvels.

This book gives science the human face, and the humorous one in that. Calm will not exit of this when being the scientist adds, but will have obtained certainly the utmost overview of the scientific subjects a lot a lot of, and street a enjoyable subject more than a too stuffy textbook.

Surprisingly, the plot of some discoveries now take for has admitted was a lot of controversial his time. Some were like this far at the head of his time that the person has concerned a lot and some facts have been re-discovered the century later.

Partorisca me, a book was the way adds partorisca appreciate an existence of a universe, an earth and life. It was also a lot inspiring to see that on some centuries, there was always the few people with house and devotion. Some are spent of the decades in the question until they have done finally the breakthrough. We owe the plot to these people.

Also recommend a book has the boy in big-pupil, around an age of perhaps 15. A book could do pupil more interesting.

I stress that the word like this rids really would owe that call to the something likes ' history the scarce of a natural world and science'. It is not roughly history in general or the others to things likes them to them a bit arts or culture. Obviously it have to that direct on something, but a title is slightly misleading if I do not know in a book before. Bryson Uses very interesting and useful analogies partorisca dip things the perspective, and has fun small histories in scientists and his experiences. A partner has said that this book was partorisca struggle to take by means of, but has learnt something new of the each page here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sometimes it has too home given to a particular area and any to another, but obviously this goes without saying when there is so only an author. It is not everything entirely elementary, and calm could find to take wikipedia or google partorisca information more basic in sure subjects partorisca comprise the complex ideas advance dipped for Bryson. In general, it is really the book that there will be you marvelling in your own existence and a world-wide around you, the must read partorisca any with an interest in science!

Formed: Paperback the writing of Bryson is adictiva but at all feeding, cushions an alcohol in the haze of anticipation of that comes afterwards?, Like the novel of detective of the pulp. A book is less in a history, meaning and potential that surprised of human understanding, that is in the capacity to say of an author that entertains episodes.

Bryson ambles A pathways of science, remarking some remarkable scientific phenomena to the long of a way, without feeling particularly deeply roughly anything, like rings was more episodes of human discovery. Some washes of what whole on the without never really taking passionately has involved. Of course, some facts are quite amazing, like this there has to that well sure the sense of YOUR DAAAAA!, it Likes him the look the magician pulls more rabbits out of hats.

This in spite of, a general sense of detachment leaves a book that feels superficial and uninspired. There is the current of the interesting facts is a thing with which another without anything really taking ours to drive in the personal level, emotional, besides the blip. It is not inspired never to look for something inner new he, so only to remark and movement on. It is as if casually it is remarking scenes by means of the window of train, without never really that worries in that is taking place, besides the simple well, that really is that it surprises, is not the., Then moving on to one after what really interesting .

It is absolutely crammed with enormous quantities of fascinating dice partorisca begin to finalise. But, personally, I found it difficult to manage for simply reading a book partorisca begin to finalise, and after struggling by means of almost the averages of some 570 pages have decided that a better and more useful place for 'History The scarce of Almost All' is' with my collection of books of reference. And ossia where now is.

It is as if casually it is remarking scenes by means of the window of train, without never really that worries in that is taking place, besides the simple “well, that really is that it surprises, is not the.”, Then moving on to one after “what really interesting” .

A day, HAS will write the books have taken. Or perhaps already expensive . Has thinks that would finalise a book, a way one finalises the bar of Cadbury Dairy Milk, but now am not sure can face any when choosing never on again, in chance my turns of brain the mush.

A book is the fun overview of the to to subjects likes him-gliela biology, physical and ask the plot of questions your professors of institute probably any one: As and when it has done the people in the first place measure an earth? That has done figure of the people out of the DNA is?

Surprisingly, the plot of some discoveries now take for has admitted was a lot of controversial his time. Some were like this far at the head of his time that the person has concerned a lot and some facts have been re-discovered the century later.

For me, a book was the way adds to appreciate an existence of a universe, an earth and life. It was also a lot inspiring to see that on some centuries, there was always the few people with house and devotion. Some are spent of the decades in the question until they have done finally the breakthrough. We owe the plot to these people.

Also recommend a book has the boy in big-pupil, around an age of perhaps 15. A book could do pupil more interesting.

Has read this two times now. Once when I took it in the first place, and now again several years later. A first time, has maintained to disturb my saying of woman 'can believe this ...' And it has been he has said his some episode of a book. Some second time have maintained my happier woman for posting endless 'can believe this ...' Gone in in facebook.

This book gives science the human face, and the humorous one in that. Calm will not exit of this when being the scientist adds, but will have obtained certainly the utmost overview of the scientific subjects a lot a lot of, and street a enjoyable subject more than a too stuffy textbook. I Like him, also of calm probably seat a constant impulse to share some gem read again to the long of a way.

This pound there have been achieving to some deep recesses of my brain for things has learnt in institute, and was the add refresher on all the things SCIENZIATHE. I stress that the word like this rids really would owe that call to the something likes ' history the scarce of a natural world and science'. It is not roughly history in general or the others to things likes them to them a bit arts or culture. Obviously it have to that direct on something, but a title is slightly misleading if I do not know in a book before. Bryson Uses very interesting and useful analogies to dip things the perspective, and has fun small histories in scientists and his experiences. A partner has said that this book was to struggle to take by means of, but has learnt something new of each page here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sometimes it has too home given to a particular area and any to another, but obviously this goes without saying when there is so only an author. It is not everything entirely elementary, and calm could find to take wikipedia or google for information more basic in sure subjects to comprise the complex ideas advance dipped for Bryson. In general, it is really the book that there will be you marvelling in your own existence and a world-wide around you, the must read for any with an interest in science!

Likes very other people find it difficult to manage enormous quantities of information and die, included when it is in the things of interest add. They are not an academician and will not be never, but I books of the amour and I enjoy to read. Bill Bryson is an academician and also the very able writer and this reserve ameno out of both. It is absolutely crammed with enormous quantities of fascinating data to start with to finalise. But, personally, I found it difficult to manage for simply reading a book to start with to finalise, and after struggling by means of almost the averages of some 570 pages have decided that a better and more useful place for 'History The scarce of Almost All' is' with my collection of books of reference. And ossia where now is. Certainly I will do good use of him on some years to come and the consider to be it breakthrough to have so well the scientific information presented in such the readable form.

Be the wise step for Bill Bryson to move of the travesĂ­a writes the science. It has it witty facilitated and eloquence quite different another in a field of popular science.
Has read this to cover to cover in a course of the few months. Thoroughly It enjoy It a factual appearances of science. Bryson this in spite of tries to weave in an evolutionary explanation for more than things in this book. These frames for the travesĂ­a quite baffling like this often informs in a book to egoistic scientists bickering and struggling was paralizaciĂłn further his name and reputations.

A book concealed gave to like considerable and continuous do like this. Involving, thoughtful, accessible and sometimes included the little sad. It has stimulated interest More the add and programs it for investigation further to the subjects would not have considered never accessible - relativities, quantum mechanics, human evolution, anthropology, geology. If so only it have found such the book when it was the young man ! Thank you So that Gentleman Bryson.

Alive this book. I have possessed both hard and soft rear versions and has had included a CD narration (but has lost one of a CDs) as now the have the kindle and that travel to plot has bought them a Kindle version... And ... Big deception... An audible version also. Reason the deception? Reason a kindle audible is not related for Bryson but for some 'law-or' that is the complete disappointment . It was so that it looks forward to Bryson has listened soul humerous vouce and a voice that is used so only has nettled. So only 3 stars given partorisca the 5++ book partorisca star

Now ossia the book all the world would owe that read. It explains in way the majority will comprise a lot of reason is that it is, a measure of spatial and some origins of us.

Books of Bryson of Bill is almost always excellent and ossia any exception .

This gives an overview of some sciences of his origins to his current state (or at least a state was in when a book has been published). There are a lot of books of vetoes it looked in a phase but Bill Bryson spend the only accessibility that coming from/come from, in my opinion, a way ameno a human element to a subject. Some chapters are mostly categorised for science - geology, astrophysics, chemical, biology, palaeontology etc. This in spite of some sciences, enough inevitably overlap from time to time inner some chapters and follow a flow of chapter to chapter more than dividing them until it subjects any one has joined.

The majority of the books of science will quote a discoverer of the particular law or a postulator of the particular theory but treat them to a large extent like this objects or almost the sidebar to a theory he. Bryson Extracted some people for behind a science like presents, with defects, shots, ambitions, contention, and rivalry that has gone to form a science of the way in general has developed. For main a reader by means of a science in a book to present some personalities that shaped remain them @@@subject accessible same by means of some of some less intuitive zones and reasons Bryson is not the scientist there is constantly the feeling of all when being the little has bitten lost in joint.

The history the scarce frequently is amusing, almost always witty, and from time to time laugh out of strong hilarious. Reading this book in a train , can ensure you, causes the pocola researches to be directed your way if, taste is a indiscreet chuckler, sblacker, and prone to of an occasional guffaw.

To write one in-description of the depth of this book would require far more the time that am prepared to commit. Everything will say is that they are in 4th reading. I read it 3 times in hardback and now moved to Kindle, which is a lot of gain how is the quite hefty take, so that it says something in a book like the source of entertainment as well as the source of information.

Highly recommends to choose on the copy yes is like the directly read-by means of or likes to choose the on, dipped down reserve to dip and went. Work a lot very like this neither.

My favourite book - in any edition achieves hard or soft. This one has a profit of some photographs and diagrams that so only adds to an entertainment of a @@subject @@@subject that is to contest. The, for one, loves it and can not take enough. Always a first book in my stock exchange of travesĂ­a.

Has read this originally press the few years done, and was impressed like this with a content and his delivery that has expected until it was in offers him to it gustanuno and-reservation for the buy again. I enjoyed it so much that the king-has ignited my amour for science, and is then be in to read a lot of some books and authors that Bill Bryson quotes in him. Have enjoyed particularly some works of Professor Sykes, and James Watson.
A book is writing of the layman point of view, and does not require to know roughly science for the bed. It is easily accessible and amused to read, and was very impressed with ow a lot groundwork Gentleman Bryson has to that it has done in the investigation. It is I triumph it of literature - especially factual literature - and spurred me to read a lot his travelogues (the notes Of A Small Island was my preferred).
A very written and entertaining book.

Honradamente Does not think can do this justice to reserve here and am sure another reviewers will be much more state eloquent that I, but has has to that say this book is absolutely brilliant. They are always state interested in science and a world-wide around , but know frustratingly pocolos of an enormous quantity there is to know and marvel in. A lot that knows comes from/comes from to look some a lot of wonderful documentaries that it is available these days, but this reserves really paste one something. Incidentally, it is it grieves half way by means of reading it, but has been thank you to write the description in all the chance. They are already be awe-has attacked several times and there is a lot of laugh-the moments was strong as well as several OMG moments (OMG has not gone enough an expression has used, but takings drift of mine ). A history that that maintain 'know' is coming roughly is that it interests enough in him. Some hardships that the past scientists have given support to find some responses have looked for is incredible: some that that life of transmission breakthroughs and another taking it bad in spite of all - a lot has had so only any idea. Then some chapters in Volcanoes and earthquakes (which is second that has read to maintain) calm mark @to give you that a planet is a film of big disaster that expects to go was. An ash @subject has been very stimulated and has excited can say you. Funnily Enough, I have had this book that chairs in the shelf for years - in a cast of things to take around the reading, but thought it could be the bit of the dry bed. It was like this bad there, but a timing could not have been better. A chapter in earthquakes speaks roughly Tokyo; to the equal that seats in a place to fulfil of 3 tectonic stuff which have been building pressure on some last 80+ years of a last quake - dictate '... Finally it is joined to snap ..... And the one who knows those that people could die.'. A book has been written in 2003 (I think) and has read that admonishes in some consequences of a disaster concealed has to that done befallen Tokyo. Yes, an earthquake has not been a main cause of death, but dip a rolling of ball. He so only spent home a reality that was reading - is not all the supposition and hypothesis - which so only done a chapter that is still in of the volcanos even more scary. Ossia An informative, exciting and fast-paced read. Thoroughly Recommend to any with an interest in this glorious and awesome universe and a life that occupies it.

Bryson Has written a lot highly readable works, and this was a prime minister I bought (I follows now an addict). It knows his material and has the wonderfully accessible way to present an amazing variety of subjects. You could take that it reads no of reader in this material. Highly recommend.

This type is the encyclopaedia to walk . Every time I listen to this audio chooses on something that has not listened before. They are the professor of physical withdrawal this in spite of studies a @@@subject to the equal that wants to maintain up with new information, but this man taught so much. Highly recommended.

Be of an artistic and philosophical character, has has does not have to that never a lot of interest in science, but once had begun reading this book could do not dipping down, and read the one of an extreme to the another in record time. Bill Bryson all interesting - is Physical , Astronomy, Pharmaceutical, Biology or Geology - leaving calm for turns awestruck, fascinated, amused and to good sure entirely engrossed. Has a easygoing, friendly fashion that mark (almost) all comprehensible and interesting.

A book left with a quite shady earth of raw planet that is existed for aeons first of the humans are gone in a scene , will spend to the along with which are missing, and that anything all some religions of worlds say, is not a culmination of an evolution of a universe - simply a species the one who only raisin to be 'any by means of' Or for the dipped more bluntly: some earth of dinosaurs has maintained the base of still roughly 70 million years (obviously in harmony with a world-wide around the), the modern man is existed for roughly 2 million years (any in harmony with a world-wide around ) calms really think a human race can do he partorisca included other million years? Material no...

Enjoyable Reading vacacional. A book chooses on top of any time and gone back to while it feels likes without loosing a plot. Inevitably Volume bamboozled for a flow of numbers the one who punctual result without senses, but is a lot readable this in spite of. Although Bill Bryson, like this always, resupplies an easy bed a subject @@@subject is managed with respecting to add and, in of the parts, is has thought enormously causes. If more it is in a room while you are reading this will be necessary to be you very disciplined to resist was relaying an amazing information this book develops on almost each page.
4 / 5
Ossia Attacked he of mammoth . Bill Bryson speaks roughly all that say like this is here today. A book covers a creation of an earth and everything in the, using knowledge of cosmology, geology, physicist, pharmaceutical and uploads more sciences.
Uses his usual, easy to read, way and explains some very difficult concepts in the level with that the majority of people would be comfortable.
Some researches that has to that quell'gone to this book is enormous, how is aimed in an enormous bibliography. Ossia Where have the question he so that has too much information in time. I have found some discoveries some old plus and of the most interesting histories that a recent information, like the concepts the new plus is often more controversial and more difficult that comprise.
Has very different, but related, subjects some duquel have more interest in that another and I sometimes found I skimming in the few pages. Often quirky the histories are mixed in and these have spent always my attention behind.
Would suggest to read a book in of the sections with pauses by other books as it conceal will give your brain more time to think in that that has read you.
5 / 5
Count it scientific of Bryson of almost everything is Carl very looked late Sagan fantastic book 'Cosmos', which is similarly like this pleasing to read.

Is not the science in the depth adds and a lot could find a lot of some subjects and information to be of enough the low level. This in spite of has like this information in here and in such an accessible level that thinks it will be to please the bed for almost any one. Bryson Starts in a start and in the each phase of life and of the science gives the fascinating accounts of his progress. This comprises information in of the discoveries scienziathe and a prominent historical scientist that has done these discovered, as well as scientific known minor. It presents this scientific history in the way that Bryson so only could: with talent and charm. Ossia Something concealed separates the book of Bryson of Sagan is, and is the factor that the book of frames Bryson even more accessible and easy for everything to read. To produce the book that science of frames so much brilliantly that interest without being too heavy whilst a same time very pleasant is attacked the worthy.

A book can be dauntingly big to some, but is fill with so much enlightening information that a reader will be drawn of page the page, and in an end ready to start with on again before @I give the to you.

A book is like this easy to result immersed in and like this fill of the educational information thinks it would do a book of ideal of school text. If the book of Bryson was to be comprised in a national curriculum would have future generations of the less has bent boys to believe mumbo-jumbo, and therefore better prepared to enjoy a beauty and importance of science.

Can not recommend this book highly enough.
4 / 5
Can not be the scientist, but Bill Bryson sure knows like this to turn some facts to something concealed a lot desiccate your brain, is understandable, and in a lot of chance, the plot of fun.

Be quickly read to sleep with a lot of some materials of reference Bryson sourced of. Our Gentleman Bryson has directed to take me by means of his book without the yawn.

Would recommend this book to any with a enquiring alcohol. You recommend this book to all the professors that Take direct. It recommends it to all the people of all age those who are vaguely interested discovers more in this odd, little planet we perch apon.

Also strongly recommends any that loves this book to exit and take them Kindled immediately so that they do not owe that clutch this all-the too bulky pound while spending container or in the train.

An Excellent read!

One of one the majority of riveting no-the books of fiction have read. It stimulates your thought and is full of alcohol-boggling facts and writings with this touch of BB humour. They are now half way by means of my third read. I have bought several copies of of the this for my friends. Fascinating Material.

Is the plot of information to read like this calm can not read this anywhere, has required to be in the calm room without distractions, dipped that down in 200 pages, reasons 1. It is quite exhausting to take in so much information and 2. I took 2 month to take that far and to be sincere was itching to read something more. But another that really that interests
4 / 5
the evolution of book and the history described of humanity and the view of natural science in general. Easy to read, full of interesting and often curious historical facts and histories, said with good portion of talent. An also shouted book questions deeper that human being on Tierra of planet and causes further thinking roughly life in noting wider.
5 / 5
The history the scarce is one the next plus is coming to the real-life Hitch-hikers Drives to a Galaxy, a tentativa ambitious and to a large extent has achieved the bridge a yawning lagoon among dipping audience and a cutting flange of science to the long of an impressive variety of epistemological salients. Another before Bryson has explained and the concrete disciplines popularised, but pocolos have tried such the wide cloth.
Bryson&8217;S the talent is the perfect tool with that to lit a plus of occasional confusions, uncertainties and idiocies of science. And although sometimes we lose an author in the thicket of complexity usually the explosions was again before some eyes glaze on.
My question is that never of then has discovered gross and inexcusable factual errors in his leading book &8216;Notes of the Small Island&8217; they are not never able state the enough of confidence Bryson&8217;s word. I owe that confess that with this experience taken behind on this feeling of book like the visitatore to the geological museum the one who strongly suspects his drives to be a perpetrator of a Piltdown hoax of Man.
On in the first place read, any error of entity has jumped went in, although I remark that another more learnt has informed his presence. If he so that it is the shame , and totally unnecessary: although an author can no any point is them and cross t is is surely a lot besides a talent or purse of an editor to employ the sub-editor with a knowledge to exert the red pen.
In that said the one who, for any with an aversion to slang and equations those who simply wants to know where some men in of the white discharges have to that this book is the must .
4 / 5
Enjoyed this, I like his fashion of writing - humorous and factual. Nizza Short sections and there is the good flow among subjects.
4 / 5
You want to read in the current scientist has thought roughly a lot thinks utmost and small? Then read this book. It is finally readable. It dips so many things in perspective. His use of words is good and his capacity to simplify the complex subjects is surprising.
Would suggest that any that wants to go to university to study the science would owe that it fishes the before they go. If any one wants to comprise anything of black holes (if any one can) to the quantum physics then read this book.
Well value the bed.

Bill Bryson has written the telephone directory amuses and accessible. For any with an interest in general science, ossia the must has read. Some histories are writings in a anecdotal way and finalised once gasping so only that small an atom is, will be LOLing in some exploits of scientists of the time spent of longitude. A for real wonderful book.

Well the humour written , good and amazing history with a truth launched in too much of boot! The enjoyed really and the fact that can be the heavy row of the subjects feels considerably less difficult.. Thank you.
5 / 5
For an American Bill Bryson has the very open and inquisitive approximation to the majority of things .
His book is light easy reading . A book 'Ours Tongue of Mother ' is almost like this as well as the book of Winston Churchill 'English in Villages of Speakers'. Well recommended reading. A book 'History The scarce of Almost All' is the light entertaining idea to be an Encyclopaedia with excellent illustrations. It can not say that it suffices to consider Bryson!
4 / 5
A lot of enjoyable. I have begun so only the only reading Bills the books of Bryson (any sure reason have taken like this along) and now can not taking. It results it is like this well like all the world has said. I am doing my way by means of his backlist. Amur His wry humour. They are sure he could do a book of pleasant telephone.
5 / 5
An entertaining and the full exhaustive book of enlightening observations and current facts roughly almost everything. The recommended reading to everything ages the one who loves to learn the tad more in current scientific knowledge. I feign to read it a lot times so only for an entertainment of him.
5 / 5
This book is tedious and rambles on in naturalists and the chemists have not listened never of and will not listen never of again except in the book has taken.
Probably A lot goes in for a lot of opposition.

He delves to one the majority of detail of minute in these characters that, whilst has had his place in history for groundbreaking the discoveries are turned to the subject of abject drudgery.

Has taken quite bored with him and the year in closing has not finalised.

Would not take too excited in east take and there are better books there to fill your time to read

is debating yes to purchase this book then so only can say do like this! It is to reserve it which will not disappoint . I have read he long, any reason is in rodeo, which is distant a lot a chance, but reason flows like this easily. Like the graduate of natural sciences, in fact a lot of moons, has loved always know more roughly, well everything! If you are of a calm character even then will enjoy this book. It is some I kings-read again in a future.

My dad recommended this book of the mine so much has a lot of lovely conversations roughly the science and the creation etc. Is the very interesting bed if you are to all that - and an author do not blind calm with terminology too much scientist. It recommends.
5 / 5
According to descriptions of Amazon, has to have at least 20 words in this description. 'BUY THIS BOOK' is so only three words. 'BUY THIS BOOK NOW' is four words, as it is taking more afterwards. 'BUY THIS BOOK NOW INCLUDED REQUIRES in your LIFE' is 11 words and concealed is exactly like chair in this book. My copy headed in United Kingdom, has been taken to France, is then be in Ireland and Indonesia, and to be sincere does not have any idea the one who has it now, but needless to say is a class to reserve all the world will want to take loaned 'when you are finalised'.

BUYS THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!

Absolutely wonderful introduction to a development of Science in a forward few years of hundred to the very good introduction to the modern scientist that comprises in several different disciplines.

Bill Bryson takes difficult concepts and a lot he so only his fact understandable to a laymen. Also he he incredibly that it interest partorisca read topped was with some fantastic humour.

Absolutely brilliant book! If you are curious of a life, a universe and everything, ossia a book partorisca you! It gives I add it recount of like this things and in such some easy to read way. An author is really a lot of present fact and it mixing up with some interesting and humorous facts of science and scientist. An add ready and would recommend to everything!

Has bought this partorisca my husband partorisca Navidad. It is read the little Bill Bryson the reservation has believed so it likes. You love it! Full of odd facts (obviously), and second that it can say that the bits is beds was the mine is science -material based more than just general knowledge. Some of him (in atoms and material) is quite that blows alcohol. Bought the second hand-held copy, but is in excellent condition. You can say that it is state first bed, but otherwise is perfect. Arrived in good time. Very happy.

Ossia One the majority of incredible book has read. It was not that a calm author maintain entertained by means of some occasionally subjects quite heavy but entertained was as well as when finalising far more informed and connoisseur roughly 'Almost All'.. Had so much in a book I to good sure read to again in the date the late plus so much can them touch even sooner down a pub! Without the doubt this would have to that be compulsory reading inside a school curriculum. I am not exaggerating when I say reading this by means of all the schools would improve future society.
Has a calm reservation would have to that shabby and read in yours lifetime ossia.

Has been recommended this book in r/books in Reddit and the are not disappointed. Like the title has said that Bill Bryson gives the lesson of history on everything of an evolution of Life and explores several fields like Physicists and Biology. Have enjoyed absolutely this book and recommend for all the world.
5 / 5
Has read already a unillustrated paperback version, but when being the thickkie has loved some pictures to help take my boss around some of some materials a deep plus. A book adds for any with an apex of curiosity in a world-wide around . Bill directs to maintain an almost fashionable boy of the innocence to some questions asks while a time still a lot when being any patronizing with some responses. A lot down the earth. It have to that be in each curriculum scolare secondary.

A first book I bed for Bill Brysonwas the present that has read with thrilling all a year 1927 in . It is like this well I have downloaded this one which still am reading I so that it find it quite weighed in disposal. Extracted an origin of a universe(s) and timelines of billions of the years and the scientists have not listened never of. Still a writing is excellent and will read it all but he probably will take more the then usual time.

There be enjoyed to read this book. Although it can be it has bitten it dulcemente in of the parts, there is enough the time where learns something new or am surprised by the fact, to maintain me interested and satisfied.

Has read this the little time, reason has an interest in science and physics especially and volume something different of him every time read that. The only desire could agree even the tenth of him!!!! An initial chapter could be has bitten it dipped to some he so that has the plot of big numbers in him, but concealed is all you really need to think- that they are so only massively almost the incomprehensible and calm numbers a lot really has to him comprise.

Formed: Hardcover Robert Macfarlane once again directs a way in writing of science/of new character. This time directs down, researching a world-wide deep under our feet by means of grottos, mines, subterranean cities, put of funeral, helar -holes and more, re-creating a darkness, claustrophobia and alcohol-bending effect to visit this underlying and mysterious plant. It weaves History, psychology, geology, literature, mythology and nail-biting suspended with a characteristic amour of tongue and adventure that marks his revelations both accessible and inspiring. It is the book that asks to be reread; in time Macfarlane can overburden his readers with an incessant flow of ideas and facts although his narrative structure remains quite strong to spend all spear in him. I found staggered for fundamental appearances of our existence in this planet that has had has not considered never. Finally a book is the door in the world is so only a bit conscious of, chooses follows Macfarlane down a rabbit-holes and crevices physically, or consult some the a lot of references resupplies for studio further. Macfarlane Can have appeal of mass but extracted all his work like pertinent academic investigation and, to his credit adds, does not take never an easy street.
Be in to good sure that a lot reserves to explore the alike territory will follow heat in some heels of Underland - but Macfarlane comprehensible and engrossing the volume dips the regulate that little it match.

Formed: Hardcover Macfarlane is one of my favourite authors and has the wonderful way to give the sense of 'put' in his descriptive writing. In a doing partorisca are and the half years, this book is very researched and a lot informative. An author can be the small 'wordy' in time, any no like this with this offering and diversions to the external works am very balanced, like the reader is not taken out of some salient points. It say there is not any earth shattering inner of new information some pages, but perhaps a lot will be new partorisca general readers. Ossia Certainly any one my favourite book for Macfarlane, and read the all, but is the good bed, although I have found some better chapters that another. Perhaps you are claustrophobic for the character will find some of the some difficult adventures partorisca read likes them the author crawls by means of some coffin like some spaces and in a chance of adventures under a city of Parigi asked so that the reason dipped by means of him, but guess taken all the classes. It seats some impressions has added to a sense of a be of the zones has described. Well lovely reading but no quite value five stars to my alcohol.

Formed: Hardcover This was my first experience of Robert Macfarlane and certainly not being my last. Burst on liking one announcing in mine FB newsfeed and was intrigued, am appreciated like this ! There I was both aghast and has surprised. Has the real fear of the tight places but I was like this mesmerized for some histories has to that say could not look out of his descriptions of a claustrophobic the experiences has in a underland. I have learnt the shot adds of this book and like the daughter of the minor he resonated with me in of the so many ways. In the esome Old Ways' now thinks!

Formed: Hardcover has to that be sincere. I have bought this book because rings something partorisca read in the travesa of long train. An illustration of coverage is of interlocking stir in the decadence. Neither a title Underland neither a sub-title A Travesa of Deep Time has given any real indication of the like a book was roughly. And it has had the tagline roughly entering a Underland by means of a riven trunk of a tree of old ash. All has suggested to be the novel of fantasy , and that that would be the fun read in the train very along travesa.
Is not the novel of fantasy. It is the book in an author that goes down to some depths of an earth in several parts of a north hemisphere to discover that it is under an earth in that tread.
Is the very long book . I have had a very simple question with him. I have not seen a point. This was partly because it was very difficult for me to see a connection among some varied sections, different of a book, averts of a fact that each section has treated something concealed is under our feet are in the particular part of a world.
One of some questions that this book has shouted is the simple a: Reason go under an earth? That is our purpose ? Ossia Reason a book is the travesa of deep time reason goes back far besides a historical record to first ours apparition like Desmond Morris, in the famous book, has called An Ape In of the skins. I have been the grottos for shelter of a time and to protect of predators. In the Then begin to bury our death. So much, this book dips a task to explore an Earth underworlds to the equal that exist in myth, literature, memory and fact.
An author explores a Underland of Europe and Greenland, visiting grottos in a Mendips, the mine in Boulby in Yorkshire, Epping Forest, some catacombs of Parigi, a subterranean river in a Carso in Italy, a Slovenian Big Earths, a Lofoten Islands in Norvegia, glaciers in Greenland and the ease of storage of nuclear waste in Finland. Some of these underlands is natural, some of them are man-has done. Everything of them requires an author to be aimed around for people those who am expert in this particular terrain.
Is difficult to see that some links among these places is, averts of the obsession of an author with going under a surface of an earth to discover that it is down. Perhaps ossia some links so only . Perhaps it is missing something.
A book is a lot of-written. Each episode is described well. Some of some marvel of histories in a sanity of humans. Reason do the people go to some catacombs of Parigi (essentially sewers) so that poden party? Reason do the people risk his lives to discover exactly where some flows of subterranean river among his disappearance and king apparition? Reason do people abseil to some cracks in of the glaciers? A response is, reason poden.
But rest with an essential question in this book. Reason has been written? And I confess that I do not know a response.

Robert Macfarlane once again directs a way in writing of science/of new character. This time directs down, researching a world-wide deep under our feet by means of grottos, mines, subterranean cities, put of funeral, helar -holes and more, re-creating a darkness, claustrophobia and alcohol-bending effect to visit this underlying and mysterious plant. It weaves History, psychology, geology, literature, mythology and nail-biting suspended with a characteristic amour of tongue and adventure that marks his revelations both accessible and inspiring. It is the book that asks to be reread; in time Macfarlane can overburden his readers with an incessant flow of ideas and facts although his narrative structure remains quite strong to spend all spear in him. I found staggered for fundamental appearances of our existence in this planet that has had has not considered never. Finally a book is the door in the world is so only a bit conscious of, chooses follows Macfarlane down a rabbit-holes and crevices physically, or consult some the a lot of references resupplies for studio further. Macfarlane Can have appeal of mass but extracted all his work like pertinent academic investigation and, to his credit adds, does not take never an easy street.
Be in to good sure that a lot reserves to explore the alike territory will follow heat in some heels of Underland - but Macfarlane comprehensible and engrossing the volume dips the regulate that little it match.

Robert Macfarlane is always the writer whose arrival of books to know the plot more in a world-wide alive in that when you have begun. The eye that opens perspectives in our world. This rids even more so much that his another treating like this he a underland.

My reason to give it 4 is that it is sadly has left down for his poor illustrations. If never the book has cried was for the fully illustrated edition ossia one . An odd map that locates the places have mentioned would have helped also.

Macfarlane Is one of my favourite authors and has the wonderful way to give the sense of 'put' in his descriptive writing. In a doing for six and the half years, this book is very researched and a lot informative. An author can be the small 'wordy' in time, any no like this with this offering and diversions to the external works am very balanced, like the reader is not taken out of some salient points. It say there is not any earth shattering inner of new information some pages, but perhaps a lot will be new for general readers. Ossia Certainly any one my favourite book for Macfarlane, and read the all, but is the good bed, although I have found some better chapters that another. Perhaps you are claustrophobic for the character will find some of the some difficult adventures to read likes them the author crawls by means of some coffin like some spaces and in a chance of adventures under a city of Parigi asked so that the reason dipped by means of him, but guess taken all the classes. It seats some impressions has added to a sense of a be of the zones has described. Well lovely reading but no quite value five stars to my alcohol.

Any praise, neither number of stars, fully can transmit a quality of this bed of this the majority of talented of writers. I have devoured all his leading books and was so only the little sceptical that this one could be the little too niche for my flavour - that bad was. In spite of concentrating in subterranean locations by means of a ball of Greenland to a Mendips, is a light that Macfarlane spear in a human condition that does these reservations like this appealing. A chapter in a grotto-riddled Karst zone of North East Italy and Slovenia , with some horrors that has taken place there on two world-wide wars, is among one the majority of powerful there is not reading never. His fashion to write is very unusual in one first splits of a book : I have cut to stab sentences, which as always, the frames think. My only caveat was that this relatively the youngster of man familiarised search having taken the series of risks quite severe in writng this book, likes to go down deep to the glacier. This does a tender conclusion that involves his edges of 4 years all an emotional plus. I can not expect for his next work.

A description read soycFarlane was the travesĂ­a very good writer, now is simply the writer very a lot of' - That is up.

An exceptional book with excellent and terrifying the histories have said of the masters craftsman.

Our past is written under our feet, is building our own sub the earth so that a future am likely. Ignoring a @@subject to store radioactive waste for 10,000 year, included then still was lethal.

Highly recommended.

Whilst Some of some experiences to be esubterranean' was to interest mine, I skipped by means of the majority of him.

In the bed the McFarlane is has has lost Words with my little sister, I ventured was partorisca read more than his work and listened in a popularity of this book. It is the different orientation the writing of character, perhaps a lot totally new terrain, but MacFarlane has the way with words that summons on a magic and wonderment of a world-wide underland. I am writing this description much more late after active read a book, but remain with some flavours, textures and sediments of the deep undermine of my own organism that anxiety partorisca discover underlying and far places under a skin of things. An end is a lot touching and hope of offers so that legated leaves behind partorisca our terrestrial inheriters partorisca find and considers. An only tickle has is that it can have had more illustrations that was in colour. It have been happy to having paid partorisca more this, and has sustained a reading partorisca have visuals, but then this leaves a partorisca use his own imagination.

Has bought this in the whim. I (quite shamefully) never listened of this author before.

If   you are, or is not never state, to hike, climbing, caving, or the old external adventure so only simple, then would recommend that it check this fella' was.

Ossia The travesía a lot poetic to the that MacFarlane described as 'deep time'. It is also a thoroughly enjoyable book roughly character, people & of place. 

(Art of good coverage for Stanley Donwood also ... Until it read a book, Donwood could not comprise reason MacFarlane has loved to use this image. His apocalyptic apparently, a ball of light represting the nuclear explosion.)

Absolutely brilliant! Helen Gordon has written the for real exceptional book in a fascinating history of an Earth.
Ossia The hard time partorisca all the world-wide that bolt with a COVID pandemic and the winter lockdown. The book of Helen Gordon is the occasion adds partorisca escape to a realm of ‘Deep Time'.
Deep time- just a contemplation partorisca blow my alcohol and is a perfect tonic anytime I perspective of need with my ‘Superficial Time' worries of day the life of day....

Ossia The terrific book , describing an intelligent dips the travesía of the reader the sympathetic geology. An idea of ‘deep time', elaborating on some years of million the existence of an earth and some a lot of phases of geological transmission and evolving life, presents the different perspective in a brevity of an existence of the each individual and humankind like the whole. An author uses it light it so much a history of sympathetic and contemporary worries geological with transmission of climate and a sure storage of radioactive waste. An account of meetings with some a lot of experts with something lovely to say in these subjects gives a book the human dimension and he the fact an easy and delicious bed.

Ossia The terrific book . They are curious in a Cotswold rock our house is built on, and some fossils find in a garden, and has thought this book would say me more. He certainly fact. The talent adds of Helen Gordon is partorisca find and that speaks to some experts in of the rocks, geological age, volcanoes, movement of earth - all some Sciences of Tierra - and present his knowledge in the clear-sighted and thoroughly readable way, like the skilled manager that directs the animate and ardent orchestra. All the world-wide interested in Geology and our year of million the thousands-old but world-wide that the transmissions still would owe that read this. The delight of investigation of Gordon of Helen and explaining Deep Time and our increasing comprising in fact this the really instructive and enjoyable book. Five stars !
4 / 5
Fantastically Writing, this book is aimed in a general reader more than an expert and an author is partorisca share very his excite and marvel. Had the little time when it felt that a book could any on the imports of sound that was it, veering among memoir, narrative of travesĂ­a and geological geekdom, but in his better, this eclectic the approximation has done well. A main reason would recommend that it is that an author I help to see a beauty and marvel of a rock down , as well as an alcohol-boggling perspective of deep time, where ours the presence in a planet is so only the blink of an eye. If it thinks that that the rocks are boring, read a fascinating histories in this book and prepare to be surprised.

Has not finalised this book still but am running by means of him. A niggle this in spite of. I finalise to read one in tectonic chapter flatly and am surprised that there is any one mention of a work a lot of entity of Marie Tharp the one who was one of some pioneers of a subject. Enough a forget of the female writer. Otherwise, a lot am enjoying a book.
5 / 5
This is not the full scientific book of facts and figures, is the sweet to stroll by means of time. It is the wonderful book , the good-looking narrative in histories of a geological world and how has come to comprise roughly like a world has been formed.
There is rekindled my interest, those a lot of years are resulted the lapsed hobby.
For some any geologists there, is not postponed, will be surprised like those interest is. There is the new world-wide integer under your feet so only while to be explored.
4 / 5
Are any to those who likes him explore the zones ignored. There is the beauty in discovering like the particular area acts, that is his history , linking some bits and pieces of knowledge to a thrilling big frame. There is the few writers of science the one who can do is, without boring calm with too much of detail.
These starts of book have taken exactly. A first third of a book immerses calm to this thrilling new world, and in a process learns the plot. Perfecto! :)
Then, has to has had the transmission in of the writers, reasons another 2/3rd of a book is totally different. His basically histories in a popular face of Geology. There is almost zero true geology in him, learns near the swimming in this subject. You learn the plot roughly all bondadoso of the to to popular subjects like 'reasons of people like this of the dinosaurs?'. Which is interesting - bondadoso of - has read he in the minute facebook estaca, but a lot he wants to expand your horizon on geology.
As it does not buy this book has loved to learn bit it roughly geology. A prime minister 1/3rd will do you so only hungrier for the really a lot one. It leaves hope any one the writing! :)
5 / 5
Geology And all his sub specialisms can be bit it dry, but an author, in the seemingly random selection of histories, examples and histories of chances, the interesting and readable fact. Using conversations and episodes of the row of experts around a World, that is usually the quite uninspiring the results @subject relatable and understandable. This is not the book of text of the geology-although it contains the plot of practical information, more than the commentary on where is in of the terms of sympathetic all of Volcanos the tectonic tower. Accessible and entertaining.

the notes of Deep Times is one of these books that indelible to your alcohol. Fantastically it is writing and is the value of lesson that answered. Still although the imagination of geology has required once is now scientifically has sustained. But the book of Helen is the banquet or perhaps the banquet partorisca ours imagination. Deep time, failures(sic) , and those doing in a science is very explained and unmissable. A lot it thanks Helen, Mike Alexander.

I have enjoyed this book: it is very written, accessible and to good sure in interesting. It has been expecting the to be bit it more technical and perhaps partorisca contain details (although finally ossia the one who a bibliography is partorisca), but was the pleasant reading and would recommend it .
