A Short History of Nearly Everything

This dude Bill Bryson condenses history so well, he makes reading it enjoyable. Starts from the Big Bang and continues to discuss the origin of each branch of science. Simple language and catchy - almost like reading a story. Recommended for everyone.









One Summer: America, 1927

Bill Bryson's summary, or rather story, of major events in the USA after WW1. Includes the rise of aviation, Prohibition, eugenics, racism, and baseball. Another very entertaining book.










Freakonomics

Another revolutionary way of thinking about how the world works, this one of breaking down everything into incentives and human nature. Tackles questions such as:

  • What do School Teachers and Sumo Wrestlers Have in Common?
  • How is the Ku Klux Klan Like a Group of Real Estate Agents?
  • Why Do Drug Delars Still Live with Their Moms?
From the observations of award winning economist Stephen D. Levitt
