Loel  Zwecker - From the Beginning to Now


Engrossing, vivid, entertaining: 4.6 billion years on 400 pages

Once upon a time there was … a journey that started with the Big Bang and is by no means over yet. From the first cell of life to the Roaring Twenties and from the ancient Egyptians to apps – sometimes no more than a short hop.

Loel Zwecker tells his tale vividly and realistically, with an eye for surprising details and hidden correlations: how spectacles were invented in the Middle Ages; how meditation became a real power in India; and how the washing machine has changed our lives.

History needs stories – and this is a very special one. For young readers and adults alike.
