GREAT DISCOVERIES IN MODERN SCIENCE

Another collection of informative pieces by the author of How It's Made. The mance of Medical Science and so forth, describes a dozen modern inventions in the making. From television to the atom bomb, material is readable and informal in style yet written it a firm grasp of the subject that should appeal to a mature young audience. Where he can, Pringle goes into the backgrounds of the inventors- showing us that John Baird, whose aby was television, overcame a delicate constitution to go ahead with his work, that Frank hittle was both too short and too daredevilish to be considered a safe bet for the air force before he thought up the turbojet. Other scientists included are Oppenheimer, Einstein, von Plard and Alexander Fleming
