A humorous and reflective look at one thousand years of the development of humankind-- those who dreamed, those who taught, those who opposed, and those who, ultimately, did. Each and every one of our inventions and discoveries was first envisioned and then developed by a single person, or a handful of people, who dreamed of the seemingly impossible. Each of these inventions has had a profound effect on the course of human history, and each one was rejected, resisted, and ridiculed in its day. Ultimately, the innovators who brought these into existence provided invaluable contributions to science and the culture of humankind.
