This is a very interesting book! James provides a wealth of information on inventions not just in our lifetime but going back to ancient man. He's done a lot of research and I find this book fascinating to read.

I love to read non-fiction such as this and to learn things about the history of technology. Unfortunately, James Dyson's A History of Great Inventions is fraught with errors. What good is a book of supposed history if it all becomes suspect? If the simple facts are wrong, how do I know if the less simple ones are correct?

An example: On page 155, Mr Dyson states that the Panama Canal opened in 1937. This is 23 years after the fact. Some things are arguable, such as the first machine that could be christened a computer, but some things simply aren't. Dyson's book gets too many things wrong to make it anything but a very frustrating read. I recommend avoiding this book entirely.
