Can you guess what Leonardo da Vinci and Steve Jobs have in common? Or Angelina Jolie and Mother Teresa? Discover how these individuals changed the course of history with their ideas, discoveries, actions, and inventions, from Johannes Gutenberg to Emma Watson. Short biographies of two seemingly unrelated figures are presented side by side and then open up to a spread discussing their common traits and how their discoveries and actions paved the way for each other and future activists. Each pair is followed by a timeline showing where the individual figures existed in history, along with other important world events. The book ends with a world map, plotting the location of each person discussed, showing how greatness comes from every corner of the world.
