    Roger Osborne describes the thrilling final decades of the 18th century when the inspiration and perseverance of visionaries such as Arkwright, Watt and Wedgwood ushered in Britain's new industrial age. With eight sections, each tracing one key aspect of this momentous process - Invention, Coal, Power, Cotton, Iron, Transport, Money and Work - his book sets the stories of individual pioneers against the wider context of the Industrial Revolution and illustrates the interconnections of people, inventions, industries and events.
