Chronicle of the Year 1989 | Review,
This review is from: Chronicle of the Year 1989 (Hardcover)
This is a book with a personal connection - a gift from my mother to the younger me, to read when I was older. As she so eloquently puts it, 'These are all things that happened the special year you were born."
It was a special year, alright. Here are a few of the things that happened: The first text message was sent, and a CERN scientist called Tim Berners-Lee had an idea which turned in to the World Wide Web. And the Berlin Wall came tumbling down, ending an era of paranoia.
And I was born, of course. Read the book to find out what else happened.
