Praise for Eureka!: Bicycle

A concise, inclusive history of the evolution of the bicycle. The multicountry perspective (Germany, England, France, America, Ireland, and China are all mentioned) is a refreshing angle; also welcome is the information on ways bicycles were and are used, their efficiency, and the etymology of bicycle names and terms. This engaging history of the bicycle is sure to pique young riders’ interest while it enriches their knowledge.
