Martin W. Sandler is the author of many books and has twice been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. He lives in New Hampshire. This book, which mainly centers on American inventors, was not printed in this land that we live in, but was outsourced and printed in Mexico! I don't know what your reactions and thoughts about this are, but I was angered and slightly disgusted. To me, it shows at least an indifferent and uncaring attitude toward working Americans and the welfare of our nation.

My son uses this in his fourth grade history class. He really enjoyed this book which is a plus when you are trying to get your student to do their homework! It is a fairly superficial look at the inventors, but it makes a good introduction to the inventors. It touches upon how they both influenced and were influenced by the events of their time.

arrived as advertised, quality binding, educational, as it is enlightening, delighted!

Have you ever had the desire to become an inventor, but felt discouraged and too inferior to excel in something that you felt was over your head? Don't be. If you were to look into the lives of inventors, both great and small, you would probably be encouraged. Why? Because you would see that they did not walk on flower strewn roads to success, that their lives were riddled with challenge and difficulty (Robert Kearns, anyone?) and were not an instant success, but usually were of humble beginning. The success stories of inventors today only exist because of the perseverance, determination, ingenuity, diligence, God's blessing, and plain old hard work of all them. By looking back on their lives and example, we have a good head start.

Allow me to start off by saying that this book is an introduction into the subject of inventors, so it's rather simple. That is not to say that it wasn't good, because it was a good book, but if you're looking for something that is of great depth, you should look elsewhere.
The illustrations, photos, and paintings in the book are very good in helping to set an intriguing atmosphere of learning and getting a feel for the past. The book was written well and accompanies the illustrations well.

One of the biggest complaints I have is not with the book, per say, but with publishers. This book, which mainly centers on American inventors, was not printed in this land that we live in, but was outsourced and printed in Mexico! I don't know what your reactions and thoughts about this are, but I was angered and slightly disgusted. To me, it shows at least an indifferent and uncaring attitude toward working Americans and the welfare of our nation.

With all this being said, I wouldn't really recommend to you to buy it (unless you really want it), but instead if you can, I recommend you take it out of your local library.

And with that, this review comes to an end.

P.S.: Oh, and by the way. The invention that Mr. Crapper was responsible for inventing was the early version of the toilet. Thank the Lord for him!
