"He has written a remarkable and wide ranging work that spans human development from the stone age to the computer age . . . Of course as a chemist, I might wish that our science and industry had featured more prominently in Great inventions, but this is a minor quibble of what is undoubtedly a major work that is nothing less than superb."  (Chemistry World, 14 November 2012)

"This isn't just a book of inventions but also the history of how it changed the world so you also have this incredible history of the world here as well. If you're creating a reality for any genre, then this is essential reading because you'll realise a lot of things weren't just there but was built upon. If you just want to be informed, then you will come away from this book with a formidable amount of knowledge. This is a book worthy of everyone's attention."  (SFCrowsnest.org.uk, 1 September 2012)
