This witty and inspiring text chronicles the long history of discovery and ingenuity which gave rise to a 'eureka moment' when a dream of invention became a reality for the first time. Tracing the long pre-history of five 20th-century inventions which have transformed our lives, Gavin Weightman reveals a fantastic cast of scientists and inspired amateurs whose ingenuity has given us the airplane, television, bar code, personal computer and mobile phone.
