This is a book giving us a background of 10 powerful men who made a difference in the world, both good and bad. The men are mainly in the time period of World War II and the Cold War. This is a good book to use to learn a little more in an eye catching cartoonish way about these men and also teach our student’s one person can make a difference in the world. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0753462591, Hardcover)

Science is not created in a vacuum, and no scientist creates an invention without influences from the past and an impact on the future. In this look at 10 discoverers, beginning with Archimedes of Greece and ending with Sergey Korolyev, each scientist’s biography is linked with another based on influences, events, and geography. By uncovering these unique and often overlooked connections, science history emerges as a chain of pattern and relationships, and readers will understand how these ten inventors shaped the course of human civilization.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:50:26 -0400)

Includes ten riveting, in-depth biographies in a graphic novel format of legendary inventors, including Galileo, Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin and James Watt.
