Full of true-life stories and famous celebrities, 100 People Who Made History contains all the people you’d expect to find, and plenty that you wouldn’t! Inventors and explorers rub shoulders with political leaders, sports stars, and entertainers from all over the world. From Aristotle to Mark Zuckerberg, to Marie Curie to Pele, all areas of culture, history, industry, sports, entertainment, and more are covered. Perfect for book reports, school projects, or anytime reading to satisfy and educate curious minds.
