Pigeon-Guided Missiles

and 49 other ideas that never took off

The History Press (August 2011)

Moore & Nero Pigeon Guided MissilesDiscover British Rail’s plan for a spaceship, the scheme to cover Manhattan in a glass dome, and why the Victorian Channel Tunnel hit a dead end.  From nuclear-powered cars to Thomas Edison’s concrete furniture, this book explores fifty exciting ideas that either became victims of the eccentric figures behind them, succumbed to financial and political misfortune, or were simply just too far ahead of their time.
