Summary
"This book is designed for a general audience, similar to those who would read Scientific American. The book describes how inventions arise from human needs instead of when the inventions were made or what technologies were involved. Chapter 1 introduces the world of inventions, and the common features of major inventions and inventors. Chapters 2 through 8 describe human needs and desires, and how inventions support them"--
