All my ideas of who invented certain things have gone out the window. The author does a wonderful job showing the origins of inventions, sometimes coming from the most obscure places, in comparison to where we believe they came from. There are a few things that the authors may have overlooked, such as Edison having the most patents ever, but that may have been rectified in recent printings. All in all very informative, wonderfully researched, and the tales told in a lively manner.
