Synopsis

101 Things You Wish You'd Invented And Some You Wish No One Had by Richard Horne, Tracey Turner

Marvel at the sheer brilliance of invention, from glass to underpants, the noble compass to the humble pencil. Not forgetting, of course, the undeniably indispensable banana suitcase. Filled with fascinating details about everything from the most common everyday object to inventions which changed society, it will also distinguish the strokes of genius from discoveries of sheer chance, or millennia of evolution ...and reveal the real reason why Alfred Nobel had to establish a peace prize (tut, tut). Expand your knowledge of man's accomplishments in the most compelling - and irreverent - way possible.

Reviews

'Top inventions detailed in this pocket-sized book. From fizzy drinks to fireworks, it's a cracker.'
