Why Didn't I Think of That?: 101 Inventions that Changed the World by Hardly Trying
This book proves not all successful inventions are the greatest thing since sliced bread (not even sliced bread, which is literally just a pre-cut loaf for lazy loafs). This humorous guide to mind-blowing inventions deconstructs just how complex these can't-live-without necessities really are, while providing some insightful(ly funny) lessons to future inventors, such as: Yo-yos--deadly weapons do make great kids' toys; Soccer--boredom is the stepmother of invention; Bottled water--there is no such thing as a stupid idea. Complete with useful trivia--like the fact that 100 trillion paperclips have been sold--readers will be able to impress their friends by hardly trying.
