Description

Technology's most intriguing stories are the tales of what might have been, those seemingly insignificant incidents that would have had the largest unforeseen effects. Imagine That...Alexander Fleming cleans up his dishes ...and penicillin is washed down the drain Steve Jobs skips the company visit to Xerox PAR C ...and computers never crack the commercial market Nikola Tesla receives philanthropic support ...and the 20th century is illuminated by space age energy and technology Engaging, contentious and compulsively readable, each book in this new series takes the reader on a historical flight of fancy, imagining the consequences if history had gone just that little bit differently.
