In the mid-1980s, Solly Angel had a technological mini-vision. He saw in his mind’s eye a quarter-inch thick personal scale weighing a pound–a travel scale–and he decided to make it a reality, to bring it to market.
The Tale of the Scale: An Odyssey of Invention is a rare first-person account of the process of invention and design as it unfolds in the remaking of the familiar bathroom scale. It is rare because inventors seldom have the inclination to articulate their thought processes and to recount their experiences in great detail. Written by an inventor, the book stands apart from recent books about inventors.
