We Take School POs
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.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring)
Written by Dan Green. The flippant chapter titles ("Movers 'n' Shakers," "Groovy Gizmos") demonstrate this easy-to-navigate but superficial book's tone. Technology of all varieties--from levers and sails to solar power and robots--is described in pun-heavy, first-person paragraphs. Manga-style illustrations do not add clarity to the text, and many are confusing. Includes a removable poster. Glos., ind.
