Review by Booklist Review

Despite the tongue-in-cheek cartoons, this continuation series means business. Packed with infographics and factoids, the colorful and somewhat madcap books provide a brief but thorough history of things mostly taken for granted. You Wouldn't Want to Live without Dentists traces the evolution of tooth care back to ancient Egypt and hones in on the gruesome methods of tooth extraction over the years while also delving into the biology of both human and animal teeth. In addition to these exhaustive histories, each volume is accompanied by extensive back matter, including time lines, fun facts, and Top Of lists. The illustrations and general tone may be teasing, but the information within is anything but, making these a legitimate and easily navigable resource for budding researchers.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2010 Booklist
