It is really a collection of what some may call trivia and I have to admit there are a few items that amazed me and amusing too. However there is a lot of what you might call historically interesting items that we tend to forget as well as innovative ideas or inventions that came and went quickly as time passed initially fulfilling a need then something better comes along. Some of the more intriguing things are bits of history about the pioneers some of them had great ideas and could get no one to back them in UK so eventually the idea was developed in another part of the world and made use of the idea yet not a penny paid to the inventor. Other ideas we use every day and give no thought to who had the original idea and its only when they pass away that the history comes to the surface and we say I never knew that!So in some ways there are many such surprises in these pages.As the headline indicates it’s not all technical stuff and tried to keep out of this volume the really technical aspects but we do live in a somewhat more technical age in modern times and due to that we choose to ignore past generations of what I would call interesting stuff. It’s worth thinking back to the days when radio was about the only form of home entertainment yet with so few stations to choose from and mainly devoid of music makes recent generations wonder how could that possibly be. It’s an internet connected world now but have they not heard of the offshore stations or the video disk players that were larger than an LP album. Many of the action movies we see now are often based on or a remake of what we would call a classic movie of the sixties and seventies. Ever heard of a Mustang- Steve McQueen maybe? Or the Italian Job a real cliff hanger movie! It’s all here and more all pretty astounding stuff. I feel a whole new title will emerge in time if this volume sells well. Oh don’t forget to browse the list of other titles by this author. Those are novels of course also available on Amazon as e-Books.For those who have a Kindle that the ideal method of reading the e-Books however those with a PC may not realise that Amazon offer a free Application download that will enable you to view any e-Books you have bought to be read on your own PC as well as your own Kindle you only pay once and let’s face it you won’t be using both at the same time so you have the option on which device you read it on having said that few I imagine would need to read on a PC and Kindles are more suited especially the newer types which have colour and lightweight. ENJOY!
