This book is a focused portrait of the lives of forty post World War II inventors and their discoveries in the fields of medicine, aviation, communications technology, computer science, and chemistry. Although they may have won Nobel Prizes or National Technology Medals, many of these inventors are relatively unknown outside of their fields-hidden geniuses who have devoted their lives to the process of discovery, often without great financial reward. Their research and breakthroughs have created thousands of important products that make our lives more comfortable, more efficient, more financially rewarding, safer, healthier, and more creative. It is impossible to imagine modern life without their innovation, such as: the Internet, the GPS, the laser, the electric guitar, the MRI, the personal computer, the pacemaker, Post-it' Notes, the TV remote control, radar and sonar, scuba gear, vaccines, Valium, and video games. It features 20 black-and-white illustrations.
