Reading Eureka was the first time I understood the effect ideas and inventions could have on humanity. It catalogues the greatest inventions in categories such as materials, mental aids, and key devices—inventions that seem completely logical and at the same time aren't. On the pages devoted to geometry there is a Chinese proof for the Pythagorean theorem that predates Pythagoras. This one bit of information changed how I look at the world.
