About this title


It is fairly well known that there are rival candidates to Alexander Graham Bell for the invention of the telephone, but attributing the idea of a moving assembly line to Henry Ford is not usually disputed. This book tells the story of 14 key inventions or discoveries, from Edison and the light bulb to Watson and Crick's research into DNA, and highlights the involvement of less famous pioneers whom history has overlooked.

About the Author:

The authors of the book are full-time cultural historian Daniel Diehl and lecturer Mark P Donnelly, who together have scripted over 80 hours of television documentary and written 11 books including Eat Thy Neighbour and Tales from the Tower of London.
