PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Did you know that the popsicle was invented by an eleven-year old who had forgotten his soda water mixture on the porch on a cold winter night? Or that LSD was discovered while trying to produce a drug that would ease the pain of childbirth? Call them accidents. Call them mistakes. Even serendipity. Fact is, while most good inventions are the result of a common problem and a well thoughtout solution, some of them were accidental and unintentional. This book reveals the fascinating stories behind the world’s greatest unplanned inventions, from roller skates, penicillin and dynamite, to Coca-Cola, Post-Its and Velcro: they are all discoveries that changed our lives and the world around us. Birgit Krols (Antwerp, 02/06/1972) worked as a journalist for 10 years before venturing into the wonderful world of books with the title Extreme Hotels. As a film journalist she earned a living interviewing movie stars, until she was asked to help found a city magazine of which she later became editor-in-chief. In 2006 she started writing books for Tectum Publishers.
