Ugh. I can't believe I'm saying this about a Dead-Famous series book but, I thoroughly disliked this book. I mean come on! I've read quite a few of the Dead-Famous series books by Mike Goldsmith, and trust me, I did not expect him to write this bad.

Lumayan berat dengan berbagai penjelasan ilmiah, tapi masih enak dicerna (。• ᵕ •。`)

Dan yang penting, karena dibawakan dengan kocak jadi gak ngebosenin ^ ^

Ada dibahas beberapa penemu, kayak: Edison, Bell, Wright bersaudara, dan-masih-banyak-lagi; berikut berbagai 'petualangan' mereka sampai dapat menemukan berbagai benda yang membuat nama mereka terkenal sampai saat ini ヽ(**)ノ

It was funny, it was ironic and it was informative. I love books that can teach us something and make us laugh while doing it. Somehow I always remmeber their teachings more easly.
