Bill Bryson Tries Nearly Everything - Does He Succeed?
A Short History of Nearly Everything has some of the Bryson wit in it, and a lot of good writing; but I haven't seen any severe comedy, and it tends to be a bit dry here and there. If you're really having problems with the book, why not try a chapter, any chapter that interests you! The chapters don't have much of an order, and each covers different topics. I am currently enjoying the one on geology.
