There are nearly 7 billion people in the world today. We are living longer, healthier, and better lives than anyone who has gone before. And this is the result of a whole chain of people who have invented or discovered something that has changed our world. Where would we be without inventors, philosophers, economists, politicians, explorers, and other "ideas" people? Some of our historical heroes were lone geniuses but many were influenced by other great thinkers and ideas. There would be no Facebook without the internet-and no internet with computers. And there could be no computers without the great mathematicians and philosophers of ancient times. So who's the Genius-Mark Zuckerberg, or Pythagoras? We think it's both. This is why every spread features a panel called "They couldn't have done it without...", revealing the people who made earlier contributions to the cause. With chapters on medicine and food processes, entertainment and culture, there's something in 100 People Who Made History for everyone. Full of true-life stories and famous celebs, 100 People proves that history can be exciting and relevant. So let's hear it for the heroes from throughout the ages: those who save lives, those who improve lives, and those who make our lives just that bit more enjoyable.

This unique book depicts the stories of Americans born in poverty, who achieved national or international fame. Accessible to students and lay readers, this scholarly study describes poverty as a disability that typically stunts important areas of growth in childhood. Wagner shows how poverty hampers individuals and groups for their entire lives, even many of those who emerge from poverty. Examples of individuals with difficult childhoods who faced residual lifelong challenges are presented in the stories of 27 Americans, including athlete Babe Ruth, birth control advocate Margaret Sanger, singer Billie Holliday, author Jack London, actress Marilyn Monroe, black leader Malcolm X, singer Johnny Cash, comedian Richard Pryor, author Stephen King, and entertainer Oprah Winfrey. In over 200 engaging and accessible pages, Unlikely Fame yields insight into successful individuals and how they coped, adapted and ultimately achieved success.
