Almost one hundred years ago, William Beebe and Otis Barton crawled into a tiny submarine to explore the depths of the sea. How did they come to invent the Bathysphere? And what did they find there,
far below the ocean’s surface?
A book about dreaming, daring, thinking, and doing.

In September 2017, TEDx Antwerp asked me on stage to do a talk. I decided not to talk about my profession as a designer and entrepreneur, but about the stories I tell my own children. Stories that are not rooted in knowing stuff, but in the drive to discover and learn new things.
People responded so overwhelmingly positive to this talk that I decided to follow up on some of the feedback I received and started writing down these stories. Marvelous but true is a book series directly inspired by how my children make me look at the world through the lenses of wonderment and curiosity on a daily basis.
