Filled with short explanations of the most important inventions of the 20th century, this book would be a great resource for a science or social studies unit in a school. Explanations are written for an older audience and mention complex scientific principles only in passing. It might require a secondary resource just to understand the explanations given in this one. Adequate bibliography and index provided. Appropriate for grades 5-8.
