First, McCormick uses a very annoying technique of inserting large chunks of boxed text throughout the book. There are 42 such instances in a 231 page book (18%) of the pages contain boxed text. That forces you to stop reading the book and read the information in the boxed text. Secondly, the book is only very loosely about Edison. McCormick seems intent on weaving what he knows about any other company into the text. In one section he dwells on Enron,McKinsey & CO. Abbot Labs and Hewitt Associates. If you want a very general overview of the development of the business culture in America, you might find it passable. However, if really learning about Edison is your goal, pick a different book.
