All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Annotation: Inventions That Shaped the World introduces young readers to revolutionary inventions, and emphasizes the impact the inventions had upon life at the time of their creation and beyond. Also explored is the featured invention's cultural significance, as well as the patterns of change that resulted from its origination. Chapters cover topics such as life before the invention, the need for the invention, its development, its influence upon culture, its evolution, and a biography on the inventor. Four-color photos, sidebars, a glossary, a timeline, an index, and a To Find Out More section complement the text. Where would publishing be without the printing press? In this book, the author skillfully presents how this revolutionary invention changed the printing process and life for everyone. From the ancient Sumerian art of printing to offset printing to e-books, this book takes a comprehensive look at an age-old technology that has changed dramatically, but at the same time has kept its most important element--the ability to pass ideas on through the printed word.
