This is a aberration for me. I seldom review anything but fiction and this is anything but fiction. This book is a collection of famous United State Patents with pithy commentary. In some ways you could say it is a picture book because the patents take up the bulk of the page. What is fascinating is that the book is actually interesting. Considering the description of the book, you might think that it would be boring but it is remarkably readable. I enjoyed the book.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
