Was expecting more of a 'list' format, but it's more 'book-y' than that. Readable, and the usual bunch of freaky facts. But the author has this odd habit of using the first person at times, which is offputting in this context.
Great book of inventions in a quirky humourist style and never boring. It obviously was a major piece of research and the author has kindly provided his sources which I found useful for a couple of topics.
