An interesting array of inventions ranging from swimming umbrellas to golf teas that would make everyone shoot like tiger woods. the surprising think is that a lot of these things would have worked in actuality but would be impractical or overly complicated. The book itself was actually informative and gives you the theory behind the invention and why it would not work or didn't catch on. Davis adds a some humor as well that made me chuckle a little. However what really makes the book is the actual installations of the inventions. Overall a nice book but wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be however it was still fun to read about all the zany things people can come up with. ( )
