Inventology takes us through how the world's best inventors came across their ideas, uncovering their creative process and uncovering what drives great inventions and how to come up with our own.




by Pagan Kennedy


In Inventology, Pagan Kennedy takes the 'great inventor' off his or her pedestal and debunks what makes a true inventor. She describes a process that's not restricted to an elite few but based on living life with open eyes, being optimistic, looking at the obvious data, and allowing our minds to roam.
