        Comments about PBS How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World (Hardcover):

        A fascinating voyage through the discovery process of scientific invention and innovation that both changed and extended the lives of billions of ordinary people.
        This was one of the most interesting non-fiction books I've ever read - I couldn't put it down until I finished!
