Written especially for young adult readers, this series helps place each significant invention, discovery, or development in historical perspective while exploring the life of the person responsible for each breakthrough. Readers will travel back in time to learn about each important scientific, medical, or technological discovery. No science fiction story even approximates the mystery and suspense contained in these true science biographies.

Grade 4-7-Solid introductions to two key scientists. Weinberg covers the life of one of the preeminent cancer researchers who has spent years searching for the genetic causes of the disease. Severs and Whiting capture readers' attention by beginning with an explanation of how DNA fingerprinting has been used to free falsely convicted individuals from prison. The authors then go on to explain how Avery's research laid the groundwork for it. The text relies heavily on Rene Dubos's The Professor, the Institute, and DNA (Rockefeller University, 1976). In both books, the layout is easy to read and includes a handful of captioned, full-page, black-and-white photographs. These titles contain just enough anecdotal information to keep students reading. Both lists for further reading are for adults.
