Bår Stenvik
Ten Incredible Inventions

Inventions that changed the world

What do the atomic bomb, the pill and the like button have in common? That’s right, they all changed the world around them. Just like the lightbulb, the clay pot cooler, antibiotics, the dishwasher, autotune, protheses and the bulletproof material Kevlar.
Through these stories we are given insights into how inventions are made, how ideas come to be and how these inventions can affect our lives.
Ten Incredible Inventions is an entertaining and educational non-fiction book, illustrated throughout by the awarded Rune Markhus.
