Breakthrough!: Canada's Greatest Inventions and Innovations by John Melady

A fantastic read "Breakthrough!: Canada's Greatest Inventions and Innovations" by John Melady

ISBN-10: 1459708520
ISBN-13: 978-1459708525

Review: Very nicely written book reminding about the Canada's contributions in the discoveries and innovations. The book also talks about the mistake of the Nobel prize committee in awarding the prize. The real inventors of the light bulb were Canadians (good to know). Reaffirms that the science always comes with a pinch of salt.

"Infection is an inescapable part of life." —Madeline Drexler

"Bacteria are usually measured in micrometers and viruses in nanometers." —Madeline Drexler

West Nile virus story is amazing, captivating and equally educational.

More will come up as I read the book.
