"Capstone’s “I & D” series offers a satisfying look at the lives of famous innovators, such as Samuel Morse and George Eastman. But most 11-year-olds will beeline to the titles about more contemporary figures, like Michael O’Hearn’s Jake Burton Carpenter and the Snowboard; Donald B. Lemke’s Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and the Personal Computer; and Jameson Anderson’s The Z-Boys and Skateboarding (all 2007). Poised somewhere between biography, social history, and a “lite” workout in basic economics, these stories are perfect for the next generation of multitaskers." - School Library Journal

"The titles in this series use a comics format to introduce kids to a wide range of technological advances, including not only old standbys, such as the printing press, cotton gin, and Model T, but also recent and perhaps more relevant subjects, such as the Zamboni, personal computer, and skateboard. These accessible distillations of scientific history are grounded by background information presented in boxes, while dialogue and sturdy art add personality to the major players and events." - Booklist Online
