It makes a great coffee table book, or even bathroom book, as every turn of the page shows a different invention with it's story.
everyone who's seen it (and I've shown it to all my family, guest... at least 30 people!) has find it interesting. It's a good book to gift to someone who loves non-tech gadgets, or who is an inventor at heart.
are all the inventions shown here revolutionary? no. some are downright useless, some are for entertainment only. but that's not the point: I think this book is more about the curious minds of common people who pursue their ideas, not just about the gadgets.
it will probably get your inventing juices going, but be cautious: most inventions show how much money their inventor has invested and how much return they earned, and about 90% of inventions are a total loss! in fact, it's surprising how much money some of these people have flushed down the drain...
Thanks Steve, keep up the good work.
