Origin Story

This is an amazing book that somehow is able to put the full history of our planet into one book. The subject matter crosses so many disciplines that I am amazed a single person was able to write it. David Christian is a Distinguished Professor of History at Macquarie University, a MOOC instructor at Coursera, a cofounder of the Big History Project with Bill Gates, a TED Talker, a speaker at the Davis World Economic Forum.

And… he can make history interesting and approachable. Our Origin Story begins with the big bang and ends with questions about our future. This book belongs in every library, it should be read by everyone serious about our present world.

David is a realist and optimist, which is rare these days. It is easy to recommend this book.
