1001 Inventions That Changed the World
Edited by y Jack Challoner

From the invention of the wheel in the fifth millennium BC to the development of the worldwide web and the launch of the MP3 player, this engaging, accessible, and enlightening book reveals the origins and impact of everything from paper to the personal computer, and from penicillin to the contraceptive pill. Many of the items, processes, concepts, medical firsts, and discoveries in this book are life-saving and life-enhancing: can you imagine a world without seatbelts, antibiotics, toothbrushes, traffic signals, or scissors? This book also explores the fascinating stories behind the breakthroughs. Written by a team of historians, designers, scientists, and anthropologists, it is nothing less than an alternative history of the world through a comprehensive study of human endeavour.
