I love this book, let me tell you why. Each topic is explained over three pages which is just enough to be able to get a basic understanding of each topic. So instead of being completely ignorant to these key breakthroughs I now have a basic understanding of each of them (or rather I will when I've finished the book).
The book is written in such a way that one can't help but to investigate each topic further. It provides an ideal foundation for further investigation. The artwork is also top notch. It's visually pleasing and intellectually stimulating. I love this book.
