Published in association with the Science Museum, London, "Genius: Great Inventors and Their Creations", gives readers an unprecedented insight into the minds and lives of some of the great men and women who have helped shape the modern world. The book transports the reader back in time to share the excitement and inspiration of some of the most important moments in the history of technology. As an invention is rarely the brainchild of a single person, however brilliant, the book also includes timelines that explain the development of an invention and pay homage to some of the other great inventors that came before and after. Beautifully illustrated throughout, the book contains 20 items of rare and removable memorabilia including: Pages from Michael Faraday's laboratory notebook describing the world's first electric motor.
