ΤΟ ΣΩΜΑ
ΕΝΑΣ ΤΑΞΙΔΙΩΤΙΚΟΣ ΟΔΗΓΟΣ
Εκδότης: ΜΕΤΑΙΧΜΙΟ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2760-4373

Απολύτως προσιτό και εξόχως εθιστικό, το βιβλίο που κρατάτε στα χέρια σας είναι το πλέον εμπεριστατωμένο εγχειρίδιο για να κατανοήσετε το σώμα στο οποίο κατοικείτε - πώς λειτουργεί, πώς αυτοθεραπεύεται και πώς μπορεί να "χαλάσει". Γραμμένο με αφοπλιστικό χιούμορ και άφθαστη ευφυΐα από τον μεγαλύτερο σύγχρονο εκλαϊκευτή, το Σώμα θα σας συναρπάσει με τα απίστευτα επιστημονικά δεδομένα που θα μάθετε (το σώμα σας έφτιαξε ένα εκατομμύριο ερυθρά αιμοσφαίρια όσο εσείς διαβάζατε αυτό το κείμενο) και θα σας βοηθήσει να αντιληφθείτε βαθύτερα το θαύμ...

(P/B) ONE SUMMER
AMERICA 1927
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0057

Britain's favourite writer of narrative non-fiction Bill Bryson travels back in time to a forgotten summer when America came of age, took centre stage, and, in five eventful months, changed the world for ever. In the summer of 1927, America had a booming stock market, a president who worked just four hours a day (and slept much of the rest of the time), a semi-crazed sculptor with a mad plan to carve four giant heads into an inaccessible mountain called Rushmore, a devastating flood of the Mississippi, a sensational murder trial, and a you...

ΜΙΚΡΗ ΙΣΤΟΡΙΑ ΠΕΡΙ ΤΩΝ ΠΑΝΤΩΝ (ΣΧΕΔΟΝ)
Εκδότης: ΜΕΤΑΙΧΜΙΟ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2760-4579

Στο κλασικό αυτό έργο εκλαϊκευμένης επιστήμης, ο Bill Bryson κατορθώνει το φαινομενικά ακατόρθωτο: να μας βοηθήσει να κατανοήσουμε τον κόσμο, παρουσιάζοντας τις σύγχρονες θεωρίες της επιστήμης με τον πιο προσιτό και διασκεδαστικό τρόπο. Με άφθονο χιούμορ αλλά και αξιοσημείωτη σαφήνεια, μας παρασύρει σε ένα συναρπαστικό ταξίδι από τη γέννηση και την εξέλιξη του σύμπαντος μέχρι τη δημιουργία του πολιτισμού και τις νεότερες ανακαλύψεις. Και αφού, χάρη στις παρομοιώσεις, τις ιστορικές και προσωπικές αναφορές, μας διαφωτίζει ακόμα και για δύσκο...

(P/B) MOTHER TONGUE
THE STORY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2412

'More than 300 million people in the world speak English and the rest, it sometimes seems, try to...' Only Bill Bryson could make a book about the English language so entertaining. With his boundless enthusiasm and restless eye for the absurd, this is his astonishing tour of English. From its mongrel origins to its status as the world's most-spoken tongue; its apparent simplicity to its deceptive complexity; its vibrant swearing to its uncertain spelling and pronunciation, Bryson covers all this as well as the many curious eccentricities t...

(P/B) A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0019

Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller: but even when he stays safely in his own study at home, he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to find out everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isn't some way to ...

(P/B) THE LOST CONTINENT
TRAVELS IN SMALL TOWN AMERICA
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0024

'I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to' And, as soon as Bill Bryson was old enough, he left. Des Moines couldn't hold him, but it did lure him back. After ten years in England, he returned to the land of his youth, and drove almost 14,000 miles in search of a mythical small town called Amalgam, the kind of trim and sunny place where the films of his youth were set. Instead, his search led him to Anywhere, USA; a lookalike strip of gas stations, motels and hamburger outlets populated by lookalike people with a penchant for synthetic fibre...

(P/B) AT HOME
A SHORT HISTORY OF PRIVATE LIFE
Εκδότης: RANDOM HOUSE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3633-0017

What does history really consists of? Centuries of people quietly going about their daily business - sleeping, eating, having sex, endeavouring to get comfortable. And where did all these normal activities take place? At home. This was the thought that inspired Bill Bryson to start a journey around the rooms of his own house, an 1851 Norfolk rectory, to consider how the ordinary things in life came to be. And what he discovered are surprising connections to anything from the Crystal Palace to the Eiffel Tower, from scurvy to body-snatching...

(P/B) SHAKESPEARE
THE WORLD AS A STAGE
Εκδότης: WILLIAM COLLINS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4692-0006

From bestselling author Bill Bryson comes this compelling short biography of William Shakespeare, our greatest dramatist and poet. Examining centuries of myths, half-truths and downright lies, Bill Bryson makes sense of the man behind the masterpieces. As he leads us through the crowded streets of Elizabethan England, he brings to life the places and characters that inspired Shakespeare's work. Along the way he delights in the inventiveness of Shakespeare's language, which has given us so many of the indispensable words and phrases we use ...

(P/B) NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0026

After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson took the decision to move back to the States for a while, to let his kids experience life in another country, to give his wife the chance to shop until 10 p.m. seven nights a week, and, most of all, because he had read the 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another, and it was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort o...

(P/B) A REALLY SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING
Εκδότης: CORGI
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3974-0090

Bill's own fascination with science began with a battered old schoolbook he had when he was about ten or eleven years old in America. It had an illustration that captivated him - a cutaway diagram showing Earth's interior as it would look if you cut into it with a large knife and carefully removed about a quarter of its bulk. And he very clearly remembers thinking: "How do they know that?" Bill's story-telling skill makes the "How?" and, just as importantly, the "Who?" of scientific discovery entertaining and accessible for all ages. In th...

(P/B) THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE THUNDERBOLT KID
TRAVELS THROUGH MY CHILDHOOD
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0075

Bill Bryson's first travel book opened with the immortal line, 'I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to.' In this deeply funny and personal memoir, he travels back in time to explore the ordinary kid he once was, in the curious world of 1950s Middle America. It was a happy time, when almost everything was good for you, including DDT, cigarettes and nuclear fallout. This is a book about one boy's growing up. But in Bryson's hands, it becomes everyone's story, one that will speak volumes - especially to anyone who has ever been young. (From ...

ΟΛΗ Η ΑΛΗΘΕΙΑ ΓΙΑ ΤΗ ΖΩΗ ΤΟΥ
Εκδότης: ΜΕΤΑΙΧΜΙΟ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2760-1590

Μια βιογραφία που προχωρά πέρα από τις θεωρίες συνωμοσίας που περιβάλλουν τον Σαίξπηρ, για να προσεγγίσει την ουσία: τη ζωή του συγγραφέα. Ζωντανή, αλλά χωρίς συναισθηματισμούς, με γρήγορο ρυθμό και χιούμορ. (ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΠΑΡΟΥΣΙΑΣΗ ΣΤΟ ΟΠΙΣΘΟΦΥΛΛΟ ΤΟΥ ΒΙΒΛΟΥ)...

(P/B) NEITHER HERE, NOR THERE
TRAVELS IN EUROPE
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0021

Bill Bryson's first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither here Nor there he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hamemrfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Floren...

(P/B) MADE IN AMERICA
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0022

Bill Bryson turns away from the highways and byways of middle America, so hilariously depicted in his bestselling The Lost Continent, for a fast, exhilarating ride along the Route 66 of American language and popular culture. In Made in America, Bryson de-mythologizes his native land - explaining how a dusty desert hamlet with neither woods nor holly became Hollywood, how the Wild West wasn't won, why Americans say 'lootenant' and 'Toosday', how Americans were eating junk food long before the word itself was cooked up - as well as exposing ...

(P/B) A WALK IN THE WOODS
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN

The longest continuous footpath in the world, the Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine, through some of the most arresting and celebrated landscapes in America. At the age of forty-four, in the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike through the vast tangled woods which have been frightening sensible people for three hundred years. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears,...

"It was as if I had privately discovered life on another planet, or a parallel universe where life was at once recognizably similar but entirely different. I can't tell you how exciting it was. Insofar as I had accumulated my expectations of Australia at all in the intervening years, I had thought of it as a kind of alternative southern California, a place of constant sunshine and the cheerful vapidity of a beach lifestyle, but with a slightly British bent - a sort of Baywatch with cricket..." Of course, what greeted Bill Bryson was someth...

(H/B) BILL BRYSON'S AFRICAN DIARY
Εκδότης: DOUBLEDAY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1046-0025

Bill Bryson goes to Kenya at the invitation of CARE International, the charity dedicated to working with local communities to eradicate poverty around the world. Kenya, generally regarded as the cradle of mankind, is a land of contrasts, with famous game reserves, stunning landscapes, and a vibrant cultural tradition. It also provides plenty to worry a traveller like Bill Bryson, fixated as he is on the dangers posed by snakes, insects and large predators. But on a more sober note, it is a country that shares many serious human and environ...

(P/B) NOTES FROM A BIG COUNTRY
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0020

From perfectly formed potatoes to adulterous US presidents, and from domestic upsets to millennial fever, Bill Bryson just cannot resist airing his opinions and standing up for his (mostly) law-abiding fellow American citizens. But of course after twenty years in England, he is now back on the other side of the pond, and is obviously having a little trouble finding his true American self again. After vigorous exercise on the Appalachian Trail comes this edited collection of Bryson's most splenetic comic pieces culled from his humorous regu...
