Insurance is an additional cost as described. Most of these stories you could look up on Wikipedia or more credible website. Nov 18, Toreisii rated it it was ok Shelves: non-fiction. An outline of some of history's ah-ha moments. The author's didactic tone and use of bullet points made this seem more like a study sheet instead of a book and unfortunately was not very engaging.
I found my attention wandering numerous times but it was inoffensive and serviceable as browsing material. Mar 31, Brittney rated it liked it. The stories were really interesting, especially towards the beginning of the book, but the stories were formulaic and I started skipping the first paragraph of each because they were so painful. The number of Midas references was inexcusable. But I learned a lot of really fun things! A quick and fun, though poorly written and edited, read. A good and interesting read. I personally found it more enjoyable to read ahead to the index to learn the specific discovery each chapter dealt with before starting a chapter.
That might spoil the fun for some, but I found that I enjoyed the book just as much when I already knew the results of the Eureka moments. Feb 21, Sheila added it. Dec 27, Leta rated it it was ok. While the author doesn't really stick to her own definition of a "eureka moment," the stories behind 40 things, many that are embedded in our daily life, are short and fun to read.

I thought this book was pretty cool with all the untold stories of inventions that changed America and the world in general. Very interesting. A quick read filled with interesting tid-bits about the creation of numerous high profile companies and organizations such as Amazon, PETA, and Susan G Komen for the Cure. Each chapter is a story. Quick read. Jan 18, Michael Kearney rated it it was ok.
This book needed a lot more work. All I really learned from this book is that if you invent something or have a million-dollar idea, you will probably end up divorced. Aug 11, Martine rated it liked it. Komen charity, however, some I did not and they were interesting, for eg. It's a quick read. Jul 30, David Wichert added it. Interesting facts about how some of our most popular products got their start. This was a fun, quick read that was not only enjoyable but imformative.
Mar 16, Marty rated it did not like it. Maybe this is unfair. The book is slight, I don't think it is amusing enough to be this slight but perhaps I am just become curmudgeonly enough that I should quit reading this kind of thing. Aug 11, Danielle rated it did not like it. Couldn't finish it. It was boring! Dec 20, Michelle rated it it was ok.
