Edison presents, in intimate detail, the man who helped engineer the modern world. One of history's most prolific inventors, and perhaps America's first celebrity, Thomas Alva Edison did more than bring incandescent light into every household and industry; he created a world-renowned brand, raised capital to support research and business, and pursued patents for his 1,000+ inventions. Leonard DeGraaf, archivist for the Thomas Edison National Historical Park, chronicles Edison's life and work, making lively and lavish use of never-before-published primary sources, including Edison's personal and business correspondence, lab notebooks, drawings, and advertising material, along with both historic and modern photographs.

Maybe, or maybe Edison was a super-shrewd business type instead, who took extreme advantage of his employees and credit for everything they did, including outright stealing, who had a well-placed individual in the Patent Office, who would deny others while steering their designs to Edison. History must be thoroughly and adquately researched . . . or, better yet, leave no Tesla, Farnsworth or Armstrong unturned!
