James Watt by L. T. C Rolt( Book )

The steam engine, more than any other invention, made possible the Industrial Revolution. And James Watt, more than any other inventor, was responsible for the steam engine.

So there can be no arguing as to whether - for better or worse - James Watt was a Maker of Britain
