"James Dyson is the inventor and designer of the revolutionary Dyson Cyclone, the vacuum cleaner that has generated a turnover of nearly $1.5 billion since it first launched in 1993. Sales of Dyson machines have reached nearly 10 million globally. And he is now embarking on his next great adventure - breaking into the most competitive and challenging market in the world: the USA. At long last the American public will be able to buy a vacuum cleaner with a huge advantage over all others - it does not lose suction." "This is the story of a man whose unorthodox methods, unswerving optimism and self-belief brought spectacular success completely bucking the trend of failed inventors and designers. It is a story of personal and business triumph and will be an inspiration for designers, inventors, entrepreneurs, or anyone who wants to know what it takes to succeed against the odds."--BOOK JACKET

Genius of Britain( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Richard Dawkins, James Dyson, Stephen Hawking, David Attenborough and Robert Winston celebrate the great thinkers and moments in British science, from Newton to the present day. The five, who co-present each programme, are joined by Jim Al-Khalili, Kathy Sykes and Olivia Judson, among others. Britain's great inventors and scientists have led the world and been at the forefront of some of history's greatest advances. From the steam engine to the world wide web, from the theory of evolution to the discovery of the atom, British science and ingenuity have helped shape the modern world. The Genius of Britain tells the stories of the people behind these pivotal moments, of the men and women who overcame all obstacles in search of scientific advancement, from Isaac Newton and Edmond Halley to Alan Turing and Fred Hoyle. Their tales range from accounts of pure genius to dark tales of obsession, deception and even bodysnatching. Tackling the areas closest to their hearts and using hands-on demonstrations, the five co-presenters tell the human stories behind the scientific and engineering discoveries that we so often take for granted
