Summary
"How would you know what time it was without clocks? How would you buy things without money? It's hard to imagine what life would be like today without the inventions and discoveries that we take for granted, from the humble bar of soap to the fantastic complexity of the Internet. Combining history with science, this series explains how these products of human ingenuity have transformed our world"--
