Praise for 100 Scientists Who Made History

This is a wonderful book for everyone – not only because it will introduce a new generation to those who discovered so much of what we take for granted today – they didn’t make history because they became famous, they made the history we look back on so we can move forward- but also to inspire – “If them, why not me?”.
