Humans have created some incredible and far-out things that have shaped our world. 100 Inventions That Made History examines the greatest inventions of all time and the people behind them. From cars to vacuum cleaners, elevators, flush toilets, microwave ovens and more, this in-depth book examines the gadgets, gizmos, machines and devices that made humanity what it is today.

More than a reference book, 100 Inventions That Made History takes every day items we all know and love— sports shoes, post-it notes, sticky tape, microscopes, the internet and chocolate — and examines the brilliant brains behind them and how they’ve impacted the way we live.

Packed with drawings, photos and sketches, the book is divided into five simple-to-follow chapters: On the Move, Getting Connected, Ordinary Things, For Better or Worse, and Culture Shock. Easy to read and hard to put down, 100 Inventions That Made History is an inspiring resource for blossoming minds set to become the next Tesla, Edison, Steve Jobs or Elon Musk.
