    James Dyson

    Top Ten Books

    Forget form over function—the inventor James Dyson cares more about how things work than how they look. It was his experience with a wheelbarrow that got stuck in the mud that inspired his first revolutionary idea: replacing the wheel with a ball. But it was his genius concept of a bag-free vacuum cleaner that never lost its suction that turned him into a household name (and pitted him against Hoover over copyright infringement, a battle he won). Having learned to be focused and disciplined as a long-distance runner, his company has assiduously supported emerging designers while continuing to develop new ideas, such as Dyson’s bladeless fans and hand driers, to make our world more efficient and better-designed. Below are James Dyson’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually. See the full list...
