In this issue of IJP instead of introducing a distinct scientist or a generous & committed patron of sciences, we are pleased to present a review of one of the most interesting books. I always loved National Geographic books rich in beautiful color pictures, elegant maps, illustrious descriptions and wealth of information. But of all those splendid books, I found 1001 Inventions far outstanding. Carrying all the “essential ingredients” of National Geographic this book is simply from heaven. It doesn’t take you to one or two trails or doesn’t give you the history & geography of one or other area of the world or for that matter entire world; this book has real soul, real fragrance, real touch and real feeling travelling in so many different parts of the world spanning over almost 10 centuries. The book is alive; beating, pulsing, listening, telling, talking, and seeing. It seems that as if the book has responded to the words of Prince Charles & Carly Fiorina.
