Synopsis: Although Benjamin Franklin is perhaps best known for his contributions to the cause of American independence, he was also an accomplished scientist. Franklin made several key discoveries about electricity, and his inventions include bifocals, lightning rods, and the Franklin stove.

Review: "If you're looking for student friendly scientific biographies, look no further. This series delivers vital biographical information while focusing on scientific principles and applications. Each volume contains a table of contents, chronology, glossary, short list books, index, and Web sites for additional references. A full-sized photograph of the scientist in a plasticized cover attracts readers and the heavy, glossy paper is easy on the eye. The layout offers plenty of white space and interesting juxtaposing of text with illustrations. Text headings and subdivisions are clearly marked. The illustrations are outstanding. Photographs, drawings, and other illustrations were well documented with short narrative explanations. Students looking for report materials will find these an excellent choice. All in all, it's a fine purchase for middle schoolers. Recommended."
-- The Book Report (March/April 2002) (Book Report 20020401)

"Illustrations, photographs, and good writing make this book a fun and interesting read."
-- Science Scope (April 2002) (Science Scope 20020401)

"These high-quality biographies provide in-depth looks at the background and education of the scientists...Solid additions for science assignments and reports."
-- School Library Journal (Febraury 2002) (School Library Journal 20020201)

"Well-selected illustrations offer a broad picture of persons and places that figured prominently both in Pasteur's life and in the consequence of his research."
-- Science Books & Film (January-Febraury 2002) (Science Books & Films 20020201)

"An even, straightforward rhythm that moves at a pace quick enough to hold the attention of juvenile readers. If all the books in the Giants of Science series are as informative and well-written as this one...they indeed represent an outstanding contribution to the field of children's literature."
-- The Anniston Star (January 2002) (The Anniston Star 20020127)

"James Watt, a fast-moving, well-illustrated biography of the determined British inventor, would be a great complement to a middle level history of science unit."
-- National Science Teachers Association (January 2002) (National Science Teachers Assn. 20020101)

"Recommended for elementary and middle school students. The title provides young readers with an in-depth look at the legendary Marconi who at a young age sought milestones in the study of the wireless. This book is staightforward and easy to read. The cover is attractive and the pictures along with the easy to read text provide information that sustains the reader's attention. Information can be correlated with the social studies curriculum. This book would be a great resource for elementary and middle school students. A welcome addition to most library collections."
-- Tri-State Young Adult Book Review Committee (November 2001) (Tri State Young Adult Book Review Committee 20011101)
