    In the introduction, author Steven Johnson shares some valuable knowledge about the journey ahead. While inventions are exciting, it is important to remember that the innovations in this book belong to everyday, normal life, not science fiction. Johnson details several groundbreaking yet simple inventions (air-conditioning, a glass of clean drinking water, etc.) that utterly changed our lives, and how these changes further inspired more ingenuity and occurrences that we may not even know are connected.
