Invention: A Life
James Dyson

Close-up of James Dyson

Invention: A Life is James Dyson's story, illustrated by many failures but defined by the many products and technologies he has developed. It is not a book about business, rather the importance of education, mentorship, and self-reliance, and the critical importance to society of engineers and scientists. It explores his constant desire to learn, fearlessness to step into the unknown, and an unflagging spirit of entrepreneurialism. Ultimately, it is a celebration of the role that young minds play in solving the world's biggest problems, regardless of experience. Explore James Dyson's story through his book, of which all proceeds he receives will be donated to charities chosen by Dyson people, and through the accompanying, interactive portal below.
