An NPR Best Book of 2018 "How to Invent Everything is such a cool book. It's essential reading for anyone who needs to duplicate an industrial civilization quickly." --Randall Munroe, xkcd creator and New York Times-bestselling author of What If? The only book you need if you're going back in time What would you do if a time machine hurled you thousands of years into the past. . . and then broke? How would you survive? Could you improve on humanity's original timeline? And how hard would it be to domesticate a giant wombat? With this book as your guide, you'll survive--and thrive--in any period in Earth's history. Bestselling author and time-travel enthusiast Ryan North shows you how to invent all the modern conveniences we take for granted--from first principles. This illustrated manual contains all the science, engineering, art, philosophy, facts, and figures required for even the most clueless time traveler to build a civilization from the ground up. Deeply researched, irreverent, and significantly more fun than being eaten by a saber-toothed tiger, How to Invent Everything will make you smarter, more competent, and completely prepared to become the most important and influential person ever. You're about to make history. . . better.… (mer)

How to Invent Everything: A Survival Guide for the Stranded Time Traveller by Ryan North was a good read. Be warned this isn't a straight-through novel but more like an encyclopedia focused on what you need to rebuild civilization. Regardless, it is fascinating and a must have for any how-to geek. ( )

One part genuinely useful guide and one part humor, North (of "Dinosaur Comics" fame) presents a guide to reinvent lots of key elements of human life, everything from charcoal (surprisingly fundamental!) to hydroelectric power. It's pretty accessible and doesn't get bogged down in details, so if you ever actually find yourself trying to rebuild civilization from scratch with the help of this book, you may find yourself doing a lot of trial and error. But this brevity helps keep the book readable and entertaining — as does the steady stream of jokes. Even people who skim past the more technical discussions of plants and chemicals will likely come away entertained. ( )

Highly amusing and informative! However, it's not really a book you'd want to sit down and read straight through; you're really probably better off picking it up from time to time and skipping around. ( )

I'm not exactly certain how to classify this book - is it a history of science framed as time travel guide or a time travel guide that includes a history of important human developments (because you'll need to understand how things got invented when you get stranded in the past)? Either way, this makes for a fun way to learn about the technology that we all rely everyday. While I hope not to need the knowledge included in this book, I would recommend it to readers with an interest in science and like a time travel premise. ( )

I didn’t write this book. I found it. It was wholly encased in bedrock , and I know that because I was the one who broke that heavy granulite stone open.
