What a Great Idea! Inventions That Changed the World by Stephen M. Tomecek

This nonfiction book is quick and easy read, but also a good one. Starting in prehistoric times, you can learn about some of the most influential inventions all the way up o the present day. The language is simple and easy to understand, but still teaches you interesting facts. There's not too much detail, but just enough to give you the background of a mechanism. The book also tells you where the idea came from, and every person who had a hand in the construction of the invention. If you want to learn but not be incredibly challenged, then this is a great book for you.
