            "An entertaining look at New Zealands science and technology achievements. From Peter Beck, of Rocket Lab, to the local manufacture of dart boards (which lead the world really!), this book takes a look at our cutting edge technologies. Conventional wisdom says that a small, agric...ultural nation should trade only milk, logs and wool but technology is now the third largest export sector, and the breadth of work going on in our science, ICT and technology industries is world leading. Yes, in the past we split the atom, and that was rightly celebrated, but now there is a more contemporary story to tell, with a wider breadth of companies, people and ideas to inspire."--Publisher information.

            How can we explain the remarkable human capacity to create and innovate? Previous attempts at uncovering this unique ability have overlooked a big clue to our human nature, by looking at the typical population instead of shining a spotlight on those at the extreme. This book offe...rs a refreshing study on autism, giving a unique perspective on the evolution of human invention. By linking the remarkable history of this singular human trait with the underrepresented and often misunderstood image of an autistic person, socially isolated, obsessively spotting patterns and collecting facts, this book offers the unique chance to appreciate both autism and invention in a new light, and as causes for celebration.
