While chronicling the development of the world's most influential technologies, TRANSFORMING POWER OF TECHNOLOGY examines how, as humanity transforms technology, technology, in turn, transforms us. Newcomen's first steam engine radically altered the way that labor could be accomplished. Incredible strides in technology increased productivity and ushered in the Industrial Revolution.
