(Now all the Australians will tweet to tell me there are PLENTY). And yes, I love that book and everything @billbrysonn writes. He's so smart and funny and good. – source

Bill Bryson many be too narrative for your needs, but I enjoyed “In a Sunburned Country” & “A short history of nearly everything” is on my TBR list. – source
