Trevor Baylis wrote this book just before the Y2K scare, when many sought clocks and gadgets that required no electricity or batteries to run. He invented not only a radio that is operated by a wound spring, but many other gadgets that can be used in third-world countries or when conventional options aren't available. In his autobiography, Baylis tells of his life as a swimmer performing tricks and dives and inventing everything from filters to the tricks themselves. Gordon Griffin brings the joys and frustrations of invention to readers, catching them in the excitement of new ideas. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
