Inventors and their bright ideas

Goldsmith, Mike, Dr; Goddard, Clive

You've probably heard of a few inventors and their bright ideas..*Alexander Graham Bell and his telephone *George Stevenson and his Rocket (which was really a train) *John Logie Baird and his television. But have you heard that... *Bell didn't invent the phone, but he did make a weird machine out of hay and a human ear *Stevenson didn't invent the train, but he did spend a lot of time collecting gas in bladders *Baird's telly was useless, and so were his thermostatic socks? Yes, even though they're dead, inventors are still full of surprises-and the ten in this book are more surprising than most. Now you can get the inside story from their long lost notebooks, read the ground-breaking news stories as their inventions hit the headlines, and find out all about the bright ideas that changed the world
