The Science Timeline Wallbook

The Science Timeline Wallbook is a six-foot-long timeline folded into one big book, containing more than 1,000 pictures and tiny captions (handy pocket magnifier included!), that tells the story of science from prehistoric times to the present day. Point a finger anywhere and learn about pesticide use in 2500 BC, the 1633 invention of the first manned rocket by a Turkish engineer or the decoding of human DNA in the 2003 Human Genome Project.

This compendium of scientific facts was written in association with the American Museum of Natural History and includes a newspaper-style "Chronicle" of key moments in the history of science and a 50-question quiz. Visual learners, science and history buffs and philomaths, rejoice! --Emilie Coulter, freelance writer and editor
