Decades before America's scientific thinkers began migrating to Silicon Valley, Bell Laboratories of Murray Hill, New Jersey was setting the pace for technological progress. In fact, according to New York Times Magazine journalist Jon Gertner, Bell Labs was the most innovative and productive institution of the twentieth century. His new book offers an utterly fascinating portrait of an intellectual lab which seems in retrospect almost utopian: Employees from different fields were encouraged to work together with little pressure to create immediately marketable products. A lively history and a revealing case study in how to generate new technology and new ideas; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
