Great review of adjacent history

How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World - Steven Johnson

This book covers a wide range of knowledge of our everyday living and how we got to it.  It made stop and think and ponder what it was like back in the day and what it felt like back in the day as these inventions and new ways of life were just being developed.  This wouldnt be too bad of of a book read for middle schoolers (advanced readers) and those in high school.  It would tie in alot of subject matter and they would have adjacent learning.  See how i use the word adjacent as steven does in his book tying together events, history, etc. lol
