Would you like to have your leg chopped off without anesthetic? Or attend a party with no music? Or brush your teeth with a stick? The odds are, probably not.

Perhaps it's time you marveled at the sheer brilliance of inventions. How did we ever end up with:

Morse code? X-rays? Toilet paper?

In this book, you will discover 101 of the most interesting, most dangerous, and most unnecessary inventions out there. Make something, invent something, or just impress your friends with your increased knowledge about where all those crazy contraptions came from.

WARNING: Increased braininess may be only temporary.
