  • - illustreret
    af Bill Bryson
    231,95 kr.

    Denne udgave er illustreret med en lang række fascinerende, instruktive og interessante fotos, tegninger, portrætter og tegneserier. En fascinerende enmandsfærd gennem virkeligheden, videnskaben og videbegærligheden - fra Big Bang til menneskets molekyler og fra galaksernes grænseland til atomernes afkroge - der med god grund blevet en international bestseller. Her er bogen, der besvarer alle de allermest nærliggende naturvidenskabelige spørgsmål, så enhver kan forstå det. »Formidlet så fremragende, at enhver læser må frydes, undres og undertiden endda grine højlydt undervejs« ***** Lars Henrik Aagaard, Berlingske Tidende Bill Bryson er ikke meget for at rejse, siger han selv. Til gengæld er han inden for hjemmets fire vægge umættelig i sin nysgerrighed efter at forstå den fascinerende verden omkring ham, inden i ham, deroppe og dernede. Historien om næsten alting er resultatet af hans enmandsfærd gennem virkeligheden, videnskaben og videbegærligheden, hvor han forsøger at begribe alt, der er sket og som findes - lige fra Big Bang til menneskets molekyler, og fra galaksernes grænseland til atomernes afkroge. Hvad han ser på sin færd, skildrer han i et livfuldt og dagligdags sprog, og han besvarer præcis de spørgsmål, som enhver anden interesseret person kunne finde på at stille. Bogen er fyldt med facts, forklaringer og fortællinger - skrevet i et sprog, der vel er underholdende og dagligdags, men samtidig så præcist, som man har ret til at forlange det af førsterangs naturvidenskabelig formidling. Historien om næsten alting er netop den bog, som mange af os har gået og ventet på - hvor vi for første gang ikke behøver skamme os over at stille de allermest nærliggende naturvidenskabelige spørgsmål. Allerbedst er, at bogen også besvarer langt de fleste af dem ...

  • - En guide til indehavere
    af Bill Bryson
    117,00 - 268,95 kr.

    Vi går gennem hele livet i en og samme krop, og alligevel ved de fleste af os stort set intet om, hvordan vores krop fungerer, og hvad der sker inden i os. Dette gør den formidable videnskabsformidler Bill Bryson, forfatter til bl.a. bestselleren En kort historie om næsten alt, noget ved. I Kroppen – en guide for indehavere tager han os med på en dybt fascinerende rejse fra top til tå og anskueliggør det vidunder, vores legeme er. Bogen er rigt illustreret og sprængfuld af viden om de mest forunderlige ting ved vores fysik, og den er, som forfatterens tidligere bøger, skrevet så ligetil og underholdende, at alle kan og får lyst til, at være med.

    af Bill Bryson
    110,95 kr.

    Tells the story of how American arose out of the English language, and along the way, de-mythologizes his native land - explaining how a dusty desert hamlet with neither woods nor holly became Hollywood, how the Wild West wasn't won, why Americans say 'lootenant' and 'Toosday', and more.

  • - Journey into the American Dream
    af Bill Bryson
    110,95 kr.

    The author has the rare knack of being out of his depth wherever he goes - even (perhaps especially) in the land of his birth. Whether discussing the strange appeal of breakfast pizza or the jaw-slackening direness of American TV, the author brings his brand of bemused wit to bear on that strangest of phenomena - the American way of life.

    'I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to' And, as soon as Bill Bryson was old enough, he left. Des Moines couldn't hold him, but it did lure him back. After ten years in England, he returned to the land of his youth, and drove almost 14,000 miles in search of a mythical small town called Amalgam, the kind of trim and sunny place where the films of his youth were set. Instead, his search led him to Anywhere, USA; a lookalike strip of gas stations, motels and hamburger outlets populated by lookalike people with a penchant for synthetic fibres. He discovered a continent that was doubly lost; lost to itself because blighted by greed, pollution, mobile homes and television; lost to him because he had become a stranger in his own land. Bryson's acclaimed first success, The Lost Continent is a classic of travel literature - hilariously, stomach-achingly, funny, yet tinged with heartache - and the book that first staked Bill Bryson's claim as the most beloved writer of his generation.

  • af Bill Bryson

    Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

    In 1995, before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire to move back to the States for a few years with his family, Bill Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort of valedictory tour of the green and kindly island that had so long been his home. His aim was to take stock of the nation's public face and private parts (as it were), and to analyse what precisely it was he loved so much about a country that had produced Marmite; a military hero whose dying wish was to be kissed by a fellow named Hardy; place names like Farleigh Wallop, Titsey and Shellow Bowells; people who said 'Mustn't grumble', and 'Ooh lovely' at the sight of a cup of tea and a plate of biscuits; and Gardeners' Question Time. Notes from a Small Island was a huge number-one bestseller when it was first published, and has become the nation's most loved book about Britain, going on to sell over two million copies.
