Inventors and Innovators Series


Even more than necessity, invention requires the tireless dedication of individuals seeking to improve their lives and that of those around them. Discovery and innovation, the re-imagining of existing tools and devices in medicine, technology, space exploration, the environment, and climatology, have been taken to previously unattainable heights thanks to people as brilliant and diverse as Hippocrates and Bill Gates. These exciting volumes profile the men and women responsible for some of the most significant developments in science and technology in the course of human history.
