An NPR Best Book of 2018

"How to Invent Everything is such a cool book. It''s essential reading for anyone who needs to duplicate an industrial civilization quickly." --Randall Munroe, xkcd creator and New York Times-bestselling author of What If?

The only book you need if you''re going back in time


What would you do if a time machine hurled you thousands of years into the past. . . and then broke? How would you survive? Could you improve on humanity''s original timeline? And how hard would it be to domesticate a giant wombat?

With this book as your guide, you''ll survive--and thrive--in any period in Earth''s history. Bestselling author and time-travel enthusiast Ryan North shows you how to invent all the modern conveniences we take for granted--from first principles. This illustrated manual contains all the science, engineering, art, philosophy, facts, and figures required for even the most clueless time traveler to build a civilization from the ground up. Deeply researched, irreverent, and significantly more fun than being eaten by a saber-toothed tiger, How to Invent Everything will make you smarter, more competent, and completely prepared to become the most important and influential person ever. You''re about to make history. . . better.
Ryan North is the New York Times-bestselling author of Romeo and/or Juliet and To Be or Not To Be. He''s the creator of Dinosaur Comics and the Eisner Award-winning writer of Adventure Time, Jughead, and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl for Marvel Comics, and he has a master''s in computational linguistics from the University of Toronto.
