1001 Inventions

Came upon an interesting book at the library. Libraries are still of value, they provide an alternate random encounter model for discovery. 1001 Inventions that Changed the World, by Jack Challenger. Bit of a coffee-table thing here, but worth a scan and sometimes a read. Disagreed with a few of the attributions, mainly because of differing views of what 'invented' means. Some of the many illustrations are not described completely. Yet is still worth a look for one view of invention and discovery.
