Inventions That Could Have Changed the World . . . But Didn’t!

by Joe Rhatigan

Discover the fascinating stories of inventions that could have changed the world, should have made a difference, or would have astounded us all, but for one reason or another, didn’t. Some inventions were too wacky, weird, or unwieldy. Others simply didn’t work. And still others may be the next big thing . . . someday.

Learn about the inventors, what they thought they would accomplish, and what—if anything—they did accomplish. Zany illustrations show the contraptions in use throughout.
