Do you have a wanna-be inventor in your home? I do! So this book was very enjoyable.
What a great way to learn about how different common products today were invented. Where did the idea come from? How old was the person? Did the product take off right away? Who got the credit for it? Did they have a degree?
You will be surprised at the answers to many of the above questions. Many of the inventors were in their teens with no degree. Some inventors didn't get credit for their inventions and some inventions that turned out to be great things didn't take off at first.
Life today would not be what it is without the inventions of the past.
