I have really loved all three books. I did not think I was going to but once I got in to White Masai I was hooked. Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Who" by Donough O'Brien, 1 Oct 2013
This review is from: Who? (Paperback)
I was delighted to buy this book and find amongst other medical pioneers my father in law, Harold Ridley. He was certainly one of those who were unlauded until too late, knighted at 92 decades after his creation of the intraocular lenses that saved the sight of many cataract sufferers round the world.

It is a really interesting book and brilliant Christmas present. Full of information about people who have invented things that we all take for granted. Such as the cash machines!
