Big Ideas That Changed the World by DK

Incredible inventions and the stories behind them. Big Ideas That Changed the World is all about the inventions that don't just change the way we do things but change the world we live in. From matches to mobiles, antibiotics to the flexible drinking straw, marvel at some of the world's most amazing discoveries that have made a sensation. Kids will love the incredible facts and info - did you know that the tin can was invented 60 years before the can opener? Read on in wonder at the stories behind each ground-breaking discovery - the scientists and inventors, ideas and knock-on effects. Some of the biggest ideas covered include the Model T Ford, Edison's lightbulb, Catseyes and the first Apple computer. If you've ever wondered how some of our greatest inventions came to be, Big Ideas That Changed the World (previous ISBN 9781405356831) will show you.
