Communicating science… Popular science writing – A film by the Wellcome Trust

Popular science writing is one of the most cherished arts in the communication of science. The writer demonstrates the ability to successfully take complex concepts and terminology and weave them into an enthralling narrative, rich with life, drama and story. In this short film bestselling author, Bill Bryson, explains how his passion to understand the world around him led him to tackle A Short History of Nearly Everything, winner of both the Aventis Prize for Science Books 2004 and the Descartes Science Communication Prize 2005.
