About the Author

Reviews

"Rosen has a facility for the telling anecdote and the quirky aside. Open nearly any page of the book and you'll learn tidbits like that Abraham Lincoln had a love of things mechanical and is the only American president to be awarded a patent (for air chambers that add buoyancy to steam ships and other boats). . . . "The Most Powerful Idea in the World" is enjoyable reading, although it does go into a lot of detail about steam engines, and you will learn more about how they work than you might expect."--Bill Gates, Best Books of 2013 Rosen has a facility for the telling anecdote and the quirky aside.
