One thing that hasn’t changed much at all in the last 10,000 years is the human brain. The relentless curiosity of the human mind, combined with our ability to solve problems, has resulted in huge innovation and change. Here then, are some of the most revolutionary ideas of the last 300 years. From James Watt and the invention of the steam engine, and the motorcars of Daimler and Benz, to the invention of cinema and television, More Great Inventors and Their Inventions explores the creation of seven great innovations, and the minds behind them. This release is a marvelous snapshot of seven of the world’s greatest inventions, written and narrated so as to spark the interest of a junior audience in the fascinating topic of science. The album is part of the popular non-fiction Naxos AudioBooks series aimed at informing and entertaining younger listeners and their parents, and is a follow-up to the well-received Naxos AudioBooks title, Great Inventors and Their Inventions.
