Big History, Small World: From the Big Bang to You blends history and science in the unique approach called "big history" and is designed for high-school students. Cynthia Stokes Brown takes a humanistic approach to material that includes meteorology, astronomy, chemistry and physics, and cell biology. This provides an ideal introduction for any reader intrigued by this rich blend of history and science. In the first chapter, Brown discusses the scientific method. In the last chapter she discusses the different ways people interpret big history and find meaning in it. The other ten chapters are based on eight major turning points, or thresholds, in the cosmic story.
