Overview

A Triumph of Genius: Edwin Land, Polaroid, and the Kodak Patent War by Ronald K. Fierstein

A compelling business biography of Polaroid and its inventor-founder Edwin Land, the father of "one-step" or "instant" photography. A Triumph of Genius tells Land’s story from his invention at age 19 of the polarizing lens, through his defense and intelligence work during World War Two through to the 1980s. The book examines the corporate and legal struggle over instant photography between Polaroid and Kodak that ensued when a cooperative and collegial relationship ended in Kodak's betrayal and a landmark patent infringement trial.
