This book covers 372 facts about technology from as far back as the Stone Age to present day. While that may seem daunting, the authors cover it in fun, creative ways. It is an easy, quick read. Each page of this non-fiction book is covered in brightly colored pictures, cartoons, and text. There is an index in the back of the book to ease the reader’s ability in finding facts about a given topic or finding that one fact they want to share with someone but can’t quite remember where it is.
This book is perfect for those interested in trivia and facts. It is marketed more towards boys, but I think girls would find it equally fascinating – I did. I learned a lot of new facts that were truly interesting. This is a more user-friendly, kid-adapted version of The Guinness Book of World Records for technology.
