Science in Focus is a broad based series that gives a clear introduction to curriculum topics and is an easy reference tool for research. The clear, well-written text is generously illustrated with large colour photographs and diagrams. Fact and History boxes extend the information, and evidence boxes suggest practical investigations. "Digital Technology" examines how the digital revolution is progressing. From the basics of digitising information of all kinds to explaining how digital-based technologies work, this title looks at whether this explosion of instant information will be helpful or will invade our privacy and security.
Chris Woodford has written and contributed to dozens of popular science and technology books for both adults and children. Consultant Bill Thompson used to be a computer programmer but now he builds websites and writes about technology.
