Overview

Science, 2nd Edition is the ultimate visual guide to the discoveries that changed the world, telling the story of science from the earliest times to the present day. This comprehensive reference book explores all the major scientific disciplines in an accessible manner, following a chronological structure and a unique thematic approach, and using an unrivaled visual style to illuminate the most influential scientific breakthroughs.

From the dawn of science and the evolution of the wheel to the Industrial Revolution and the first battery to the Information Age and the Internet, each spread takes a specific event, discovery, invention, experiment, theory, or individual and explains its significance and impact on the development of scientific thought. Instantly understandable text, integrated with artworks and photographs, renders each of these tricky subjects comprehensible, and a general reference section at the back of the book includes classification tables, symbols and charts, a who's who of all scientists, and more.

Now updated to include all the latest developments and created in association with the Smithsonian Institution, Science, 2nd Edition offers a uniquely visual and family-friendly history of science and the discoveries that changed the world.
