Praise

It’s an entertaining and often surprising exploration of lesser-known innovators, past and present.
—Publishers Weekly

In his first foray into writing for children, basketball superstar Abdul-Jabbar teams with Obstfeld to

twins, who learn that many items in a typical house and used by a majority of Americans were invented or developed by African Americans.
