Review Quotes

"Marshall Cavendish obviously recognizes the research needs and interests of the target audience for this set. The choice of inventors, the inclusion of more than 1,000 full-color illustrations, and the highly readable and engaging text all create a valuable reference for students and browsers alike." --Booklist starred review, March 1, 2008

". . . the 172 entries in this set include information on Mary Anderson's windshield wipers, George Eastman's handheld camera, King C. Gillette's safety razor, and Frank Whittle's jet engine. . . . Some accounts of these inventions can be found in other sources, but none are as inclusive and thorough as this one."
--School Library Journal, February 2008
