May's book is a great introduction to the study of "men in sheds" and how their inventions definitely changed our lives and shaped the world in which we live.
There is a DVD that follows along with the book, and I am sure it is just as good as the book.
The one thing that irks me is the way the publisher arranged the photos. They are arranged in sections and not necessarily with the chapters they relate to. This isn't a big deal, but if were to use it with a class then I know I would have some student complaining. But all students complain about something.
This book is definitily on a 8th grade reading level, which is not to say the writing is low brow. The writing is just accessible by almost anyone.
