Has anyone read it? I think it's one of the best books I've read in a while.

Yep, I love how he manages to fit in everything so concisely and manages to make things subjects like the history of science readable and humorous. Have you read Mother Tongue by Bryson - awesome history of the English Language etymology and humour it's amazing why we say some of the things in everyday language.
