The Book of OriginsBook - 2006
A treasure-trove of information on the origins of everything - from music to mobile phones. Everything has an origin. This book if for people who want to know how, or when, things began, where they came from, why they started. And when it has a human origin, such as Christianity or Ferrari cars, the name of the person who started it. Everyday items such as the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the televisions we watch, the medicines that cure us, the languages we use, all began somewhere (and the answers are often not what you expect). This book celebrates the work of explorers, scientists and inventors people who wanted to know how the world works and ended by discovering something no one had ever seen before.
