Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Interesting and attractive explanations of how video, satellites, and television function, and how these inventions have influenced the information explosion. A brief history of each invention, a description of its many and varied uses today, and predictions for the future are included. Of special note are the number of full-page biographies of individuals who were pioneers in their respective fields, information not easily found elsewhere. The many full-color photographs greatly enhance the texts. Readers gain a clear insight into the impact these inventions have had on society. "Amazing facts" sidebars offer additional tidbits of data, and the glossary, timelines, suggestions for further reading, and index all make these titles especially useful. Good choices for libraries needing current books on these topics.Marion F. Gallivan, Gannon University, Erie, PA
