5.0 out of 5 stars Great overview and use of diagrams 5 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover
Superb use of graphics to explain complex subjects and multiple timelines in an easily accessible manner.

Really love the use of exploded diagrams to deconstruct sealed devices like smartphones and laptops.

Also sad to see the actual author Clive Gifford and the consultant Dr Mike Goldsmith not cited as authors, especially Clive as this shows his diverse talents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! 22 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have bought this for Christmas for my gadget-daft 9 year old. Had a quick flick through and I'm sure it will be a winner. It's packed with loads of information, facts and figures.
