    The ultimate eye-opening journey through time and space, A Short History of Nearly Everything is the biggest-selling popular science book of the 21st century and has sold over 2 million copies.

     

    Truly impressive…It’s hard to imagine a better rough guide to science.’ Guardian

     

    A travelogue of science, with a witty, engaging, and well-informed guide‘ The Times

     

    Mr Bryson has a natural gift for clear and vivid expression. I doubt that a better book for the layman about the findings of modern science has been written ― Sunday Telegraph

     

    A fascinating idea, and I can’t think of many writers, other than Bryson, who would do it this well. It’s the sort of book I would have devoured as a teenager. It might well turn unsuspecting young readers into scientists. And the famous, slightly cynical humour is always there ― Evening Standard

     

    A genuinely useful and readable book. There is a phenomenal amount of fascinating information packed between its covers … A thoroughly enjoyable, as well as educational, experience. Nobody who reads it will ever look at the world around them in the same way again ― Daily Express

     

    Of course, there are people much better qualified than Bill Bryson to attempt a project of this magnitude. None of them, however, can write fluent Brysonese, which, as pretty much the entire Western reading public now knows, is an appealing mixture of self-deprecation, wryness and punnery ― Spectator

     

    The very book I have been looking for most of my life… Bryson wears his knowledge with aplomb and a lot of very good jokes Daily Mail

    A clear and accessible examination of the quest to combine Einstein’s general relativity with quantum theory to create an all-encompassing “theory of everything” about the nature of the universe. — Andrew Anthony ― The Observer

     

    Kaku elucidates esoteric mathematics with graspable, real-life illustrations, and explains how breakthroughs in theoretical physics have had a tangible impact on human experience … The result is both mind-bending and surprisingly readable. — Pippa Bailey ― New Statesman

  • The Intimate Universe

    Rs. 3,990.00

    Marek Kukula

     

    The scale of the cosmos can be baffling, with distances so vast and timescales to long that it’s easy to dismiss them as being completely divorced from our everyday life. But in this new book Dr Marek Kukula, Public Astronomer at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, shows you the myriad ways we are intrinsically connected to the rest of the universe and how everything on Earth – from the ground beneath our feet to the technology in our pockets – has origins in space.

     

    Discover how rocks from space reveal what conditions are like at our planet’s core, how the desolate surface of the moon holds ancient clues to Earth’s earliest life forms, and how buried treasure in the Nile reveals the watery past of Mars. Discover how the atoms of your own body were forged in the heart of a star, how you can see the echo of creation on your TV, and the ways in which technology developed for observing the most far-flung corners of space is now used to diagnose potentially fatal human diseases.

     

    The Intimate Universe is a curated tour of the most fascinating phenomena and discoveries in astronomy, revealing how we are inextricably, inspirationally linked to the cosmos.
