Learn about the history of modern science engineering IT and much We meet the individuals who played a key role in their development and share uirky anecdotes about their lives and brainwaves Inspiring unusual and at times controversial BAD IDEAS assesses the past and also looks forward to the opportunities and ethical challenges of the future In so doing it celebrates man's extraordinary capacity for achievement whilst warning us that his good intentions can sometimes end up as thoroughly bad ideas. Took a rather long time to finish this book dus to a busy schedule and the fact that I took my own time to digest all the knowledge this book contained Very informative and eye opening From the story of the Golem to the aphorisms of science that made me look through researchers' eyes this book was a wonderful learning experience

I started off loving this book but got a little tired towards the 2nd halfWell researched and well written with loads of insider insights on the history of scientific cultural agricultural and industrial development the format of this is so great But on the other hand the conseuences of it maybe aren't got to wear a bit thinI've loved the two TV series of this author that I've seen but this is a book maybe to read slowly a chapter a week or by someone with patience than meA good book A very good reference book A great read
