Bill Bryson,: At Home : A Short History of Private Life

At Home : A Short History of Private Life


From one of our most beloved authors, a fascinating excursion into the history behind the place we call home now richly illustrated with more than three hundred images. National bestseller "At Home" is Bill Bryson s epic chronicle of domestic history. In this handsome new edition, his riveting room-by-room journey of discovery around his house a Victorian parsonage in southern England is enhanced by more than three hundred carefully curated illustrations, the large majority of them in full color. As he did in the hugely successful "A Short History of Nearly Everything: Illustrated Edition," Bryson complements his sparkling prose with striking illustrations selected from a wide array of sources to create a feast for the eyes as well as the mind. He has one of the liveliest, most inquisitive brains on the planet, and he is a master at turning the seemingly mundane into an occasion for the most diverting exposition imaginable. When you ve finished this book, you will see your house and your daily life in a new and revelatory light. In Bill Bryson s hands, the bathroom provides the occasion for the history of hygiene; the bedroom for an account of sex, death, and sleep; the kitchen for a discussion of nutrition and the spice trade. From architecture to electricity, from food preservation to epidemics, from the telephone to the Eiffel Tower, from crinolines to toilets and the brilliant, creative, and often eccentric minds behind them Bryson demonstrates that whatever happens in the world ends up in our houses, in the paint and the pipes and the pillows and every item of furniture."

Lots of pun books claim to have hundreds of puns, but they really just offer a few dozen good ones mixed in with other types of jokes or quotes. This book actually contains over 500 excellent and original puns: It's real, it's quality, At Home : A Short History of Private Life pdf and it's rather large indeed. What more do you need? Henrietta s family did not learn of her immortality until more than twenty years after her death, when scientists investigating HeLa began using her husband and children in research without informed consent. And though the cells had launched a multimillion-dollar industry that sells human biological materials, her family never saw any of the profits. As Rebecca Skloot so brilliantly shows, the story of the Lacks family past and present is inextricably connected to the dark history of experimentation on African Americans, the birth of bioethics, and the legal battles over whether we control the stuff we are made of.
