Editorial Reviews

"Top ten lists (mostly ten items) presented by experts highlight important milestones, impacts, and notable issues. The lists expose topics that might otherwise get lost within a chronology.This book adds value by making its content accessible and inviting. Students can flip through the pages and find something interesting. Summing Up: Recommended.?-- CHOICE, July,2014 "Cleveland and Morris integrate the social, physical, biological, and engineering sciences in a broad reference designed for diverse readers. The overarching themes are sources, foundations, applications, impacts, and correlations. Within these, 53 sections are each covered by chronologies that document the major events that define the topic; top ten lists that provide personal insight from specialists in that field;."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
