Fraud & Trickery on One of the World's Most Famous Patents
This book is hard to put down. It is very well researched and written! The author has done fantastic detective work and makes his case that Bell saw Elisha Gray's patent first and then altered his, using influence to get his patent entered first. The author started reluctantly down this path and had to prove it to himself as well as scientists and historians he knew at MIT's Dibner Institute before he wrote the book. In my opinion, simply ignore any negative review(s). This is a must-read. In fact, there are modern examples of similar tactics with patents but it is still shocking to see an iconic figure such as Bell perpetrating and benefitting from such deceit. You'll love this book.
