California Firsts does just what its title promises it will: recount the many ways in which California has made original contributions to the nation¿s life (and the life of the entire world, for that matter). Freeways and television, lasers and the Internet, fast food, fortune cookies, Popsicles and more all made their debut here¿and that is just the beginning. This is an engaging read and one that gives you the lowdown on many of the areas in which California has led the way in enhancing the world¿s life, but there are areas it misses, too. You also need to read Carl Palm¿s The Great California Story: Real-Life Roots of an American Legend, to get the full picture. Taken together, however, these two cover the territory.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
