Imagine life without music, buildings, clothes, books, engines or even speech! This is what the world would be like without the 53 things that changed the course of history. From primitive discoveries such as fire and the wheel, to modern creations such as the jet engine and computers – not forgetting some of the great inventing disasters – this book contains them all. And once you’ve read about the 53 things, find out which is the half – an invention which will change the lives of millions, but is still not fully completed.
