万物简史 | A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson

从宏观宇宙大爆炸学说的建构,到微观夸克粒子理论的创立,从万有引力到相对论,从地质板块构造到生物进化论,从冰川理论到地球变暖……

历历在目的天下万物组成了本书,这是一部通俗易懂又引人入胜的现代科学发展史。作者比尔•布莱森建筑了一座通俗易懂、充满惊奇的科学博物馆,又顺手卖几份八卦小报:达尔文居然为蚯蚓弹起了钢琴;牛顿将一根大针眼缝针插进眼窝,为的只是看看会有什么事情发生;居里夫人跟一位有妻室的物理学家发生过暧昧关系,所以没当上院士;卡文迪许在自己身上做电击强度实验,竟然到了失去知觉的地步……

历史上的冷面科学家被还原成了品性各异的“奇葩”,严肃刻板的科学史被还原成人类探索未知的每一步。本书在讲述科学的奇迹与成就的同时,还浸润着浓郁的悲天悯人的人文关怀。

一位美国读者说,读过《万物简史》之后,他对死亡不再感到恐惧……比尔•布莱森认为,这才是一本书所能获得的最高评价。

In Bryson's biggest book, he confronts his greatest challenge: to understand—and, if possible, answer—the oldest, biggest questions we have posed about the universe and ourselves. Taking as territory everything from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization, Bryson seeks to understand how we got from there being nothing at all to there being us.

To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced (and often obsessed) archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read (or tried to read) their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds. A Short History of Nearly Everything is the record of this quest, and it is a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only Bill Bryson can render it. Science has never been more involving or entertaining.
