About the Author:

Arthur W.J.G. Ord-Hume is a qualified mechanical engineer who, after leaving the Royal Air Force, designed civil and military jets. A postwar pioneer of private flying, he later designed and produced small planes. He has written widely on aircraft instruction and received many international awards.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Make a machine which gives out more work than the energy you put into it, and you have perpetual motion. The basic tenets of engineering grew from the failures of perpetual motion. The deceptively simple task of making a mechanism which would turn forever fascinated many an inventor and, perhaps surprisingly to us today, a number of famous men and physicists applied themselves to the task.
