"Visually appealing photographs and bright color backgrounds with a large, eye-popping font catch the attention of readers. Meant to meander through rather than read page by page, the volume has something for everyone: facts, trivia, and detailed views of the inner-workings of some remarkable inventions...VERDICT With the many topics included, this would be a useful starting point for many science fair topics, reports, science classes, or for those who wish to just browse and learn." -- School Library Journal
