Young adult book for middle/high school age group on the history of the X-ray. I got it for work to browse through for some interesting facts, but it was so engrossing that I ended up reading it in-depth cover to cover. It was well-written and fascinating information on how the x-ray was discovered, historical uses and uses today in the art world, astronomy, industry, etc.

This was a work-related book, but I found it so fascinating that I kept going. Targeted for young people, a basic intro/history to X-rays.
