From School Library Journal
Gr 4–6—Besides common favorites like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, this series tackles other fascinating and essential figures in computer science history, including world wide web creator Tim Berners-Lee and 19th-century programming pioneer Ada Lovelace. Each subject's childhood and early inspirations are explored. Layouts are colorful and well illustrated with stock and media images. Text blocks are typically brief. Sidebars elucidate concepts, for example, the working of Nazi codes in Turing or a thumbnail sketch of 19th-century Scottish mathematician Mary Fairfax Somerville in Lovelace. Some titles rely on photos credited to Wikimedia, still an alarm bell for some librarians, and narratives tend to veer into hyperbole, with an excessive use of exclamation points. There are no source notes or bibliography. VERDICT Overall, adequate introductions for sparking interest in technology and history. --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
