              "An entertaining look at New Zealands science and technology achievements. From Peter Beck, of Rocket Lab, to the local manufacture of dart boards (which lead the world really!), this book takes a look at our cutting edge technologies. Conventional wisdom says that a small, agric...ultural nation should trade only milk, logs and wool but technology is now the third largest export sector, and the breadth of work going on in our science, ICT and technology industries is world leading. Yes, in the past we split the atom, and that was rightly celebrated, but now there is a more contemporary story to tell, with a wider breadth of companies, people and ideas to inspire."--Publisher information.
