American author, Bill Bryson has won the General Prize for the Aventis Prizes for Science Books 2004, with his first popular science based book, A Short History of Nearly Everything (Doubleday/Transworld).
A Short History of Nearly Everything is Bill Bryson's quest to explain the world that we live in through an in-depth study of seven distinct topics: the origins of the universe; the historical discovery of the size and age of the earth; relativity and quantum theory; the present and future threats to life and the planet, the origins and history of life and the evolution of man.
The shortlist covered a broad range of fascinating subjects and A Short History of Nearly Everything reflects the high calibre of compelling writing that the Aventis Prizes have become synonymous with.
