  • - En guide til indehavere
    af Bill Bryson
    116,95 - 269,95 kr.
    Fragt 39,95 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.

    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 ...

  • - Amerika genopdaget på Appalacherruten
    af Bill Bryson
    122,95 kr.
    Fragt 39,95 kr.

    BILL BRYSON tager af sted for at vandre ad den berømte rute gennem Appalacherbjergene, The Appalachian Trail. Med sine over 3300 kilometer langs Amerikas østkyst er denne rute de lange vandretures bedstefar. Foran Bryson og hans umage makker, Stephen Katz, ligger endeløse skove fulde af farer – rødlosser, bjørne og ulve; forrykte bondeknolde destabiliseret af hjemmebrændt majswhisky, rabiesplagede stinkdyr, vaskebjørne og egern; ubarmhjertige stikmyrer og forslugne kvægmyg; giftige bærbuske … Hvorfor udsætte sig selv for den slags? Jo, forklarer Bryson: ”Jeg ville også gerne have lidt af den selvtillid, der indfinder sig, når man kan spejde ud mod fjerne horisonter med et granithårdt blik og med langsom, mandig stemme sige: ’Ja, jeg har skidt langt ude i skoven.’” Bill Bryson har skrevet en lang række bestsellers, senest En kort historie om næsten alt (2006). En tur i skoven er blevet filmatiseret med Robert Redford i rollen som Bryson.

    WINNER: NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELLER READER AWARD FOR BEST TRAVEL BOOK OF THE YEAR 2016WINNER: BOOKS ARE MY BAG READER AWARD FOR BEST AUTOBIOGRAPHY OR BIOGRAPHY 2016Twenty years ago, Bill Bryson went on a trip around Britain to celebrate the green and kindly island that had become his adopted country. The hilarious book that resulted, Notes from a Small Island, was taken to the nation s heart and became the bestselling travel book ever, and was also voted in a BBC poll the book that best represents Britain.Now, to mark the twentieth anniversary of that modern classic, Bryson makes a brand-new journey round Britain to see what has changed.Following (but not too closely) a route he dubs the Bryson Line, from Bognor Regis to Cape Wrath, by way of places that many people never get to at all, Bryson sets out to rediscover the wondrously beautiful, magnificently eccentric, endearingly unique country that he thought he knew but doesn t altogether recognize any more. Yet, despite Britain s occasional failings and more or less eternal bewilderments, Bill Bryson is still pleased to call our rainy island home. And not just because of the cream teas, a noble history, and an extra day off at Christmas.Once again, with his matchless homing instinct for the funniest and quirkiest, his unerring eye for the idiotic, the endearing, the ridiculous and the scandalous, Bryson gives us an acute and perceptive insight into all that is best and worst about Britain today.
