Read the stories of what really happened to the creators of some of the World's Greatest Inventions. Itâ™s not what you would expect as through the interventions of politics, vanity, dirty dealings, plagiarism, capitalism, and religious beliefs, these people never achieved the fame or fortune they rightfully deserved! These inventions are ones that you will recognize and most people benefit from today, in one form or another. The most fortunate of these inventors received something for their inventionsâ¦even if it was a pittance. Others went bankrupt or lost their lives. Some were railroaded or had their inventions stolen. Some were not even recognized for what they invented! They come from all backgrounds and their stories span over 550 years! Stories from U.S., Canadian, English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish inventors are included. There are over 200 pages and 67 fascinating stories all total! It has stories to interest everyone from computers, cars, rockets, musical instruments, sports, planes, ATM machines, diapers, kindergarten, games, super gun and many more! Thirteen Chapters each with their own theme such as ""Railroaded"", ""Forgotten"", ""Swindled"" and ""Grim Reaper""! The author is a veteran state invention convention judge with 37 years of high technology engineering experience. Especially recommended for student inventors participating at State/Province/Country Sponsored Invention Conventions. Very valuable to all inventors as a good reference, lessons learned, and pitfall avoidance guide. Also a great book for history and trivia buffs. An excellent ""guy gift"" for that special guy! Be sure to read the back cover for a taste of what is in store for you...
