History's Worst Inventions is a light-hearted look at 50 of the worst inventions to grace the history of humankind. It casts light on the failures of otherwise celebrated inventors from Da Vinci to Edison, alongside the work of less well known and sometimes short-lived pioneers. Each entry outlines the inventor and his/her invention, as well as the reasons for its shortcomings, and their extent and consequences. They bring the personalities, history, science, politics and intrigue behind each of the innovations to life, before going on to unveil their consequences. History's Worst Inventions is illustrated in full colour using a wide range of drawings, paintings, photographs and maps.
