The essential improvements that Scottish inventor James Watt (1736 - 1819) made to the steam engine were fundamental to the Industrial Revolution. It would be hard to overstate the value of this invention to technological and social change - it gave us the modern world we live in today. This is his biography as written by Andrew Carnegie, the Scottish-born American industrialist, businessman, and philanthropist.
