Book Review

Publisher's Note:

Did you know more people have cell phones than toothbrushes? That Google answers about a billion questions a day? Or that Alexander Graham Bell wanted the standard telephone greeting to be "Ahoy"? Discover these incredible facts and more in the next Fact Attack book, all about inventions and technology. Fact Attack is an exploration of the most amazing and awe-inspiring facts about technology and inventions throughout history. Heavily designed with different approaches on each page, the style is dynamic, fresh, and in your face. Whether you flip to a page to learn a digestible fact or read it from beginning to end, this is a book a reader will return to time and again.…

Overall Book Review:

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.

About the Reviewer

My favorite books are ones that change me and my perceptions of the world in a significant way. My favorite genre is probably historical fiction with biographies as a close second.
