A Fascinating Tour of Great Ideas,
This review is from: The World's Greatest Idea: The Fifty Greatest Ideas That Have Changed Humanity (Hardcover)
John Farndon sets out to do the impossible - to compare and rate the best and most important ideas ever conceived. He comes up with 50 wonderful ideas and ranks them in order. To be fair he acknowledges that there is no objective way to rank the wheel as more imprtant than say vaccination. However, the effort is worthwhile and the book is fascinating. He explains the historical context behind each idea and shows its impact. I enjoyed it and would recommend the book to any serious reader.
