Not a book I would usually have picked up but I found it so interesting. Learning about the lives of some of the greatest inventors was fab!!!

An amazing insight to lives and deaths of these gifted inventors. So many inventions we just take for granted. Some inventors never gained from their inventions and others came about their invention by sheer determination and luck.

c2009. The title says it all really so no need for the normal FWFTB. The normal inventors are in this book together with a few lesser known individuals. A quick and fascinating read. Recommended.
