School Library Journal
Gr 5 Up
Clear explanations of scientific thought and fact are presented in conversational tones and illuminated by easily grasped examples, making the subject matter less daunting. Sidebars, maps, and well-captioned illustrations further detail the scientists' personal lives, education, and the societies in which they lived. Excerpts from the men's writings are liberally scattered throughout. A lengthy annotated time line illustrating major events in the subjects' lives, contrasted against historical and cultural milestones, enhances each volume, and a "Life at a Glance" section provides key biographical information.
