Book ID: 78308
In Swedish Genius, authors Petter Karlsson and Johan Erseus tell the stories of the people behind some of the most ingenious Swedish inventions. Gripping portraits are interspersed with little-known anecdotes. Nobel Prize-winner Gustaf Dahlen for example - a late riser in his youth - invented the world's first automatic coffee maker with a timer while only 14 years old. The book is richly illustrated with photos, drawings, letters and original advertisements.
