Before the World Was Ready

Before the World was Ready
Stories of Daring Genius in Science

Hardcover, 125 pages

This is a fun group biography of people who were ahead of their time when it came to ideas of how things work or should work. Though their peers may have thought them crazy, we today know that they were brilliant and contributed greatly to our current society. The format is like that of a chapter book. The sections are short and accompanied by cartoon-style illustrations. The reader will not only learn about the great thinkers themselves but how the world and society has changed over the years.
