Invention that single leap of a human mind that gives us all we create Yet we make a mistake when we call a telephone or a light bulb an invention says John Lienhard In truth light bulbs airplanes steam engines these objects are the end results the fruits of vast aggregates of invention They are not invention itself br In How Invention Begins Lienhard reconciles the ends of invention with the individual leaps upon which they are built illuminating the vast web of individual inspirations that lie behind whole technologies He traces for instance the way in which thousands of people applied their combined inventive genius to airplanes railroad engines and automobiles As he does so it becomes clear that a collective desire an upwelling of fascination a spirit of the times a Zeitgeist laid its hold upon inventors The thing they all sought to create was speed itself br Likewise Lienhard shows that when we trace the astonishingly complex technology of printing books we come at last to that which we desire from books the knowledge the learning that they provide Can we speak of speed or education as inventions To do so he concludes is certainly no greater a stretch than it is to call radio or the telephone an invention br Throughout this marvelous volume Lienhard illuminates these processes these webs of insight or inspiration by weaving a fabric of anecdote history and technical detail all of which come together to provide a full and satisfying portrait of the true nature of invention How Invention Begins: Echoes of Old Voices in the Rise of New Machines books by John H.
