No, I am looking into a book about famous scientists and found these. The authors had a series of interesting looking books. I thought maybe someone had used them before, maybe.

I love all the Janice books.  My son did one on geometry last year.  They are a great resource.  Here is one I absolutely love and have used repeatedly.  http://www.amazon.com/Inventors-Who-Changed-World-Series/dp/0753462591/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1373025850&sr=8-6&keywords=10+changed+world

I have not tried the first one but it looks like it might be interesting.
