'Who's Who in Science and Technology' contains biographies of 170 of the most important scientists and inventors from Ancient Greece through to the 20th century. Written in an informal, friendly style, the book provides essential information about their lives. Aimed at children of 8-12 years, the book is easy to use, with cross references, a glossary and an index. The text is interspersed with appealing cartoon-style illustrations.
Expert consultant: Anthony Wilson, formerly of the Science Museum.
Bob has written/co-written fifteen of the eighteen 'What They Don't Tell You About' series and always produces interesting text and lively, humorous illustrations. He is the author of 'Who's Who in British History' and 'Who's Who in Science and Technology', as well as the four 'Who? What? When?' books; 'Tudors', 'Victorians', 'World War I' and 'World War II'.
An excellent idea for the general bookshelf.
