How Canadian Innovators Made the World Smarter, Smaller, Kinder, Safer, Healthier, Wealthier, and HappierBook - 2017
Successful innovation is always inspired by at least one of three forces -- insight, necessity and simple luck. This book looks through history to explore what circumstances, incidents, coincidences and collaborations motivated each great Canadian idea, and what twist of fate then brought that idea into public acceptance. From the marvels of aboriginal inventions such as the canoe, igloo and lifejacket to the latest pioneering advances in medicine, education, science, engineering and the arts, Canadians have improvised and worked together to make the world a better place. With vibrant illustrations throughout, Innovation Nation is a gorgeous companion to the adult edition that will surprise, enlighten and entertain young readers.
