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 here being us. To that end, he has attached himself to a host of the world’s most advanced archaeologists, anthropologists, and mathematicians, travelling to their offices, laboratories, and field camps. He has read their books, pestered them with questions, apprenticed himself to their powerful minds.
