Average Rating
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Using unprecedented access to Edison family papers and years of research at the Edison corporate archives, Neil Baldwin offers a revealing portrait of one of Americas seminal inventors: a man whose imagination, dynamism, entrepreneurial brilliance epitomized the American dream as he became a victim of its darker side.

"Baldwin has demythologized the man and left the genius bigger than life." --Newsweek
