Key Features


Can you imagine what your world and your life would be like if there was no glass? You use glass from morning to night every day, from the mirror you look in when you wash your face in the morning to the bulbs that light up your home after dark. All sorts of foods and drinks are stored in glass bottles and jars. Many of your electronic gadgets have glass screens. Cameras and spectacles, or eyeglasses, have glass lenses. The signals that carry your phone calls and texts, and Web pages when you're online, make part of their journey along glass communications cables. And every home, school and workplace has glass windows. You wouldn't want to live without glass.
Series Information
What would your life be like if you had to do without all the modern inventions you take for granted? How would you cope without a toilet? Could you get by without electricity? If antibiotics had not been discovered, would you still be alive today?
Starting from these thought-provoking questions, each title in the fantastic You Wouldn't Want to Live Without... series takes us on a historical journey. We learn how people really did cope in the past, and how they developed ingenious ways to make life safer and less unpleasant. And so to the future: What further changes can we expect to see in our own lifetimes? This science and technology strand within the internationally acclaimed You Wouldn't Want to Be... series features fantastic full-color cartoon-style illustrations and hilarious speech bubbles, making the books attractive even to reluctant readers.
