Offering a wealth of information in straightforward, jargon-free language, each title provides readers with an overview of the topic technology's history and development, showcasing the people and advancements that have played vital roles in the field. Each chapter's key words appear in bold and are summarily defined in a glossary. Sidebars are used judiciously yet in an impactful way, and the captions accompanying the numerous photos provide readers with rich details that complement and enhance the text. At the conclusion of each volume, a visual time line neatly reinforces the material and, in most cases, highlights how briefly these amazingly advanced technologies have existed.
VERDICT First-rate nonfiction for STEM-themed career collections.
