Inventors and Inventions takes a refreshing look into the fascinating history of inventors and inventions. With encyclopaedic breadth, the book follows a diverse list of inventions from their earliest manifestations through to their most current incarnations, whilst also revealing how some of today's greatest inventions came about by accident or chance.
From the arcane beginnings of the frisbee, to the role of Muybridge's eccentric moving-picture photography in the development of cinema, Inventors and Inventions considers how and why these inventions came about, who was responsible for them and what their subsequent impact has been. Often overlooked inventors are also discussed, giving them their rightful place amongst the celebrated minds from the past; while controversies regarding attribution are exposed and explored.
Inventors and Inventions is an engaging and thought-provoking book sure to
delight and educate readers of all ages.
