The Origin of (almost) Everything is a popular science book by Graham Lawton which covers the origin of over 50 different things from the universe and atoms to dogs and penicillin.

Personal

Always eager to learn more about science, I started listening to this book.

Status

I don't own this book, but am currently listening to the audio book.

Review

Good

Bad

  • Some of the origins don't go into nearly enough depth. For example, in the chapter on the origin of the universe, the author explains that quantum mechanics teaches us that the universe has a net value of zero, and that "nothing" is unstable, and always breaks into something. This is presented without any evidence or data to back it up.
