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

Requested it from the library! Thanks for the tip. 🙂
Ha!!! I was JUST looking at this day before yesterday! Online, I mean, don't have it in hand yet. Haven't read the original. Looks like one my gang will enjoy. Thanks for the review.
