Overview

See the greatest minds in history like never before; rendered in the greatest way imaginable: 8-bit pixel art!

This book celebrates the 64 Best. Brains. Ever; the geeks who each played an essential part in taking humanity from mud huts to the world we live in today.

Discover more than you knew about geniuses like Galileo, compelling characters like Ada Lovelace or Nikola Tesla, or be enchanted by heroes of the modern age like super-geek like Steve Wozniak. The one thing they all have in common? They changed the world with their minds.

A fun way to look at the people who have shaped are would, but not always sought the limelight (did you know that Steve Wozniak - not Steve Jobs - created the Apple Computer, and that "Woz" as he is known, enjoys a game of Segway Polo?)

Find out which inventor is most responsible for every electric device in modern homes, but died in penury after obsessing over the creation of a "death beam", or how Archimedes greeted his killer.

The custom-drawn illustrations make turning every page a treat, and the snappy biographies are fascinating.
