Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9-Beginning with Herman Hollerith's punched-card system and ending with Marc Andreessen and his NetscapeR Navigator, this volume profiles 13 American pioneers in the field of computer technology. Approximately 10 pages in length, the biographical sketches include average-quality black-and-white photographs and highlight the sort of material that interests young people: where the subjects were born, what they did and/or enjoyed as children, family background, and good coverage of the contributions that made them famous. Students will find the text easy to read, nontechnical, and filled with enough information for reports and enough appeal to spark further investigation. These pioneers are portrayed as real people who liked math or science, who came from many different backgrounds, and who persevered when it would have been easier to give up or find something less frustrating to do. Relevant Internet sites are appended.
