Description

Who was the first, who is the fastest, and who is the best? This book celebrates humans' quest to race to the top!

Split into five chapters, the book explores humans' physical abilities, geographical discoveries, engineering achievements, and scientific and technological breakthroughs. Find out who is the fastest human being on Earth, discover the story behind the race to the source of Nile, and marvel at how human beings have conquered the skies, always striving to fly higher. 

With fact-packed timelines and test yourself activities included throughout the book, readers can find out where they stand in the human race and be inspired by the incredible people who have come before them.
