Author(s): Alex Woolf
Imagine a world without books. You would have no information about the world outside, except what you could learn from travellers. You would know nothing about the past, except what storytellers could remember. The book is a truly amazing data storage device, yet most of us take it for granted. Find out how it has developed over the centuries, and how it is being reinvented for the future.
Alex Woolf studied History and Politics at Essex University. He has been an editor of non-fiction books for 18 years, and has written more than 30 books, mainly for children.
