Reviews

"This book sparkles with heaps of ideas, some plain bonkers, others, like the car, more pedestrian....this book is fun and full of quirks...a fine yarn." -- The Waikato Times
"The popular science is fun and easily accessible, and there's more to the inventors experiments than the title can contain." -- Los Angeles Times
"[Wearing's] background as a science educator is advantageous in this entertaining piece of popular science: she portrays lively personalities and eccentric projects in concrete prose." -- Booklist
"Captivating ... This book is full of lessons for inventors and non-inventors alike." -- Henry Petroski, author of Success through Failure
