Covering ten important general areas of scientific study including space, wheels, light, medicine, energy and life, this handsome information book shows how ideas have developed over the centuries, new discoveries adding to what has gone before to lead us to where we are today. It’s a fascinating concept, and a great deal of information is conveyed via the clear, concise passages of text and stylish cartoon illustrations. The book is perfect for browsing and will appeal to readers of a wide age range. ~ Andrea Reece
