Summary
  • Part of a series that explores the origins and effects of those inventions that shape the modern world by traveling through history to bring to life the associative nature of change
  • The big spin: The greatest medical accident in history starts a trail that leads to the search for Helen of Troy, police blotters, seventeenth-century flower-power and insurance statistics that help a Yale professor to invent soda pop and his son to find oil, that triggers work on microfossils and the kind of World War I bangs that started earthquake detection
  • Bright ideas: A Baltimore man invented the bottle, which led to razors, clock springs, and the Hubbell telescope
  • Making waves: Hairdressers, Gold Rush miners, Irish potato farmers and English parliamentarians are really tied together
  • Routes: A sick lawyer in 18th century France changes farming and triggers the French Revolution and new medical research
