This is one of a series of “Defining Moments” books covering a century plus of information.  The other books in the series cover history, art, books, music, and movies; this particular book covers some of the most important discoveries, people, inventions and so forth from 1900 through 2007.  From Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, quantum physics (1900, believe it or not) to cloning and nanotechnology, this is the one of the coolest books your inner geek could ever want, all 800 pages of it. From Sterling Publishing and available at from your local, independent bookseller.
