Overview

OF INTEREST TO: readers of social history, students of technological innovation

With the use of the telephone has come a new habit of mind. The slow and sluggish mood has been sloughed off. The old to-morrow habit has been superseded by
"Do It To-day"; and life has become more tense, alert, vivid.
-from "The Telephone and National Efficiency"

This classic 1910 book-by one of the first stars of technology journalism-is a charming and highly readable overview of the impact of the telephone in its first quarter-century.

Discover:
. what led Alexander Graham Bell to his breakthrough
. the early ridicule Bell's "toy" endured
. the adventurous business pioneers of the new technology
. the scientific refinements that made the telephone more useful
. how the technology quickly shifted from a novelty to a necessity
. how the telephone was revolutionized banking, industry, journalism, government, and even farming
. and much more.

Canadian journalist HERBERT NEWTON CASSON (1869-1951) contributed to numerous New York and London publications, writing mostly about business and technology. He is also the author of The Romance of Steel: The Story of a Thousand Millionaires.
