Well, if you drive a car, have an operation, use a mobile phone, wear a raincoat or survive the flu - you’ve benefited from the work of an enlightened Scot.
Andrew Ferguson’s new book, Scots Who Enlightened the World, brings a fresh look to a not-so-old period of time in Scotland.
Want to know more? Head along to Blackwells on Thursday where Ferguson, with the help of a couple of actors, will bring his book to life, followed by a talk, question and answer session and signing session.
