From the printing press to Wi-Fi, popular science writer Steven Johnson explores the history of innovation and examines where these ideas came from and how they moved from idea to existence. From a simple concept, bizarre coincidence, or surprising accident, hear more about some of the most brilliant inventions that have revolutionized the world in which we live.
