Description - Brilliant! Scottish Inventors, Innovators, Scientists and Engineers Who Changed the World by Andrew G. Paterson

Over eight hundred great minds are introduced in Brilliant! Scottish Inventors, Innovators, Scientists and Engineers Who Changed the World.

From 1453 to present day, countless inventions and discoveries are presented in a chronological order.
With the criteria of Scottish nationality, Andrew G. Paterson showcases the intelligent and creative endeavours of Scots with many motivations. Hailing from war-times and in peace, through the Industrial and Agricultural Revolutions, and located in all corners of the world, Scottish men and women gifted the world with time-changing and original contraptions, devices, procedures and theorems.

Author Biography - Andrew G. Paterson

The author was born in Glasgow in 1946 and emigrated to Australia in 1960, at which time he started to collect information on prominent Scots. By 2005, he had details of over 15,000 Scots whose influence went far beyond Scotland. This book is a result of some of that research.
