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.

About the Author:

Ann Graham Gaines has been a writer for 18 years, specializing in books for young readers. Some of her recent titles include Britney Spears and Steve Jobs (Mitchell Lane) and Sammy Sosa (Chelsea House). She holds graduate degrees in American Civilization and Library and Information Science from the University of Texas at Austin.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-Introductory biographies of two computer geniuses. Both begin by placing the subjects in their historical and cultural milieus and include interesting anecdotes. Berners-Lee comes across as a humble man who changed our lives when he developed the World Wide Web. However, he has not accumulated great personal wealth from his seminal work. Gaines uses many quotes from her subject's book, Weaving the Web (Harper, 1999). Her title is similar in scope to Melissa Stewart's Tim Berners-Lee: Inventor of the World Wide Web (Ferguson, 2001). Riddle and Whiting describe Wozniak's successes as well as the challenges he faced after he cofounded Apple Computer. He has used his great wealth to give back to the community through philanthropy and teaching in elementary schools. The book is less detailed than Martha Kendall's Steve Wozniak (Highland, 2000). Both volumes define new words in reader-friendly terms within the text. Black-and-white captioned photos appear throughout. Useful for reports.
