Have you ever wondered how our lives got to be so good during the 20th Century? I have and then I start thinking about all the inventions that were created primarily by Americans and the U.S. had made it easy for patents to be granted and from that kind of encouragement from our government many people invested their time and money into making work saving appliances, automobiles, telephones, airplanes, automatic assembly lines and much more. It was a century whose atmosphere made many people comfortable in investing their own time to make life better for us all. There is lot to say about the 20th Century. This book describes how that creative environment helped drive this thinker to reach for the stars.
