Origin Story A Big History of Everything
No. of Pages,
This is a great read! You certainly won’t get through it in one sitting, but it is worth the time. I love reading science books, so this was an easy, entertaining book from that perspective.
But this is a history book as well. A big-history book. It kept my attention for the majority of the time and I learned a lot, but I confess to skimming through a bit of the pre-farming history. I may revisit that later.
The last part of the book discusses possible human species futures - the good and bad anthropocene. Two promising documents are referenced - one from the United Nations. The other being the Paris Agreement. Of course, every reputable scientist today recognizes the tragedies of Trump. That’s my obvious comment as this author rightfully keeps his political and religious views out of the book.
I highly recommend this book to those who appreciate the scale of the cosmos and our very small part in its grand scheme.
