And the atomic era begins with a frightening flash, changing life as we know it forever. More than two million years of science and technology unfold, with all the milestone achievements in biology, chemistry, and physics placed in their broader social context and shown in plentiful images. The far-ranging feats include everything from the anonymous invention of the sewing needle to heart transplants.

Very lovely timeline of science inventions with pictures and the gist of every discovery made. Very nice to flip through.

Exemplary combination of words, pictures and concise explanations in chronological order of scientific discoveries in the history of mankind. Only 119 pages, 9 x 6 inches. Resembles a comic book but educational.
