Summary

Archimedes, Gutenberg, Franklin, Nobel, Bell, Marconi, the Wright Brothers, and Edison: Nine remarkable men produced inventions that changed the world. The printing press, the telephone, powered flight, recording, and other innovations have made the modern world what it is. But what were the men who had these ideas and made realities of them like? As David Angus explains, they were very different: quiet, boisterous, confident, or withdrawn. But all had a moment of vision that they combined with single-minded determination to battle through numerous obstacles and produce something that really worked. This is a fascinating account, especially for younger listeners.
