Can you imagine how different life would be without the printing press? It's unlikely you'd ever have held a book. And your clothes would look very different without the invention of spinning and sewing machines. Without boats, trains, and planes, even our diets would be changed. Read about the fascinating creators of these inventions and the struggles they faced. Some got rich, some fought for every penny, but they all changed the way we live our lives today. Inventors profiled in this collection include James Watt (the steam engine), Elias Howe (the sewing machine), Cyrus McCormick (the reaper), John Gutenberg (the printing press), Alexander Graham Bell (the telephone) as well as many more. This reprinting is complete and unabridged featuring all the original illustrations and reformatted text for easier reading.

In Hollywood biopics, inspiration strikes great inventors like a bolt of lightning. An accident, a random thought, an apparently unconnected remark - any of these things can provide the trigger that the screen hero of heroine needs to perfect an invention. The movies make it seem all too easy, of course, but a surprising number of inventions really have sprung from just such a eureka moment. inventions were conceived. It demonstrates how sheer creative genius enables a few lucky individuals to look right through the problem, and come up with a solution that has eluded rivals. Also considered are other aspects of innovative technology, such as the simultaneous and independent invention of a new device by researchers on opposite sides of the world. (in Thomas Edison's words) genius is 1 per cent inspiration and 99 per cent perspiration. The book dedicates a section to these non-eureka moments.
