《A Short History of Nearly Everything》(《万物简史》)


——作品介绍——


这是一部有关现代科学发展史的既通俗易懂又引人入胜的书,作者用清晰明了、幽默风趣的笔法,将宇宙大爆炸到人类文明发展进程中所发生的繁多妙趣横生的故事一一收入笔下。惊奇和感叹组成了本书,历历在目的天下万物组成了本书,益于人们了解大千世界的无穷奥妙,掌握万事万物的发展脉络。

书中回溯了科学史上那些伟大与奇妙的时刻,引用了近年来发现的最新科学史料,几乎每一个被作者描述的事件都奇特而且惊人:宇宙起源于一个要用显微镜才能看得见的奇点;全球气候变暖可能会使北美洲和欧洲北部地区变得更加寒冷;1815年印度尼西亚松巴哇岛坦博士拉火山喷发,喷涌而出的熔岩以及相伴而来的海啸夺走了10万人的生命;美国黄石国家公园是“世界上最大的活火山”……而那些沉迷于科学的科学家们也是千奇百怪: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;富兰克林不顾生命危险在大雷雨里放风筝;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……

这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。全书从科学发展史的角度对“我们从哪里来?我们是谁?我们到哪里去?”这一千古命题作了极为精当的阐释,每一个人在阅读此书之后,都会对生命、对人生、对我们所生活的世界产生全新的感悟。一位美国小读者的父亲说,读过《万物简史》之后,他对死亡不再感到恐惧……作者认为,这是一本书所能获得的最高评价。

Bill Bryson is one of the world’s most beloved and bestselling writers. In A Short History of Nearly Everything, he takes his ultimate journey–into the most intriguing and consequential questions that science seeks to answer. It’s a dazzling quest, the intellectual odyssey of a lifetime, as this insatiably curious writer attempts to understand everything that has transpired from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization. Or, as the author puts it, “…how we went from there being nothing at all to there being something, and then how a little of that something turned into us, and also what happened in between and since.” This is, in short, a tall order.


To that end, Bill Bryson apprenticed himself to a host of the world’s most profound scientific minds, living and dead. His challenge is to take subjects like geology, chemisty, paleontology, astronomy, and particle physics and see if there isn’t some way to render them comprehensible to people, like himself, made bored (or scared) stiff of science by school. His interest is not simply to discover what we know but to find out how we know it. How do we know what is in the center of the earth, thousands of miles beneath the surface? How can we know the extent and the composition of the universe, or what a black hole is? How can we know where the continents were 600 million years ago? How did anyone ever figure these things out?


On his travels through space and time, Bill Bryson encounters a splendid gallery of the most fascinating, eccentric, competitive, and foolish personalities ever to ask a hard question. In their company, he undertakes a sometimes profound, sometimes funny, and always supremely clear and entertaining adventure in the realms of human knowledge, as only this superb writer can render it. Science has never been more involving, and the world we inhabit has never been fuller of wonder and delight.




——作者简介——

比尔·布莱森,享誉世界的旅游文学作家。1951年出生于美国艾奥瓦州,毕业于美国德雷克大学。从1973年起,曾在英国居住20年之久,任职于《泰晤士报》与《独立报》,同时也为《纽约时报》、《国家地理杂志》等刊物撰文。后搬回美国,现与妻子和四个小孩居住于新罕布什尔州的汉诺威市。

布莱森擅长用不同的眼光来看待他所游历的世界,在他的书里,英国式的睿智幽默与美国式的搞笑绝妙地融合在了一起。他的尖刻加上他的博学,让他的文字充满了幽默、机敏和智慧,使他自己成为“目前活在世上的最有趣的旅游文学作家”(《泰晤士报》)。

代表作有《哈!小不列颠》、《欧洲在发酵》、《一脚踩进小美国》、《别跟山过不去》、《请问这里是美国吗?》等多种,每本均高居美、英、加畅销书排行榜前列。其中《哈!小不列颠》更被英国读者推选为“最能深刻传达出英国灵魂的作品”。

Bill Bryson was born in Des Moines, Iowa. For twenty years he lived in England, where he worked for the Times and the Independent, and wrote for most major British and American publications. His books include travel memoirs (Neither Here Nor There; The Lost Continent; Notes from a Small Island) and books on language (The Mother Tongue; Made in America). His account of his attempts to walk the Appalachian Trail, A Walk in the Woods, was a huge New York Times bestseller. He lives in Hanover, New Hampshire, with his wife and his four children.
