About the Author

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 - April 21, 1910),[1] better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. Among his writings are The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885),[2] the latter often called "The Great American Novel".

Twain was raised in Hannibal, Missouri, which later provided the setting for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. After an apprenticeship with a printer, Twain worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens.

Twain moved to San Francisco in 1864, still as a journalist, and met writers such as Bret Harte and Artemus Ward. The young poet Ina Coolbrith may have romanced him.

Twain was fascinated with science and scientific inquiry. He developed a close and lasting friendship with Nikola Tesla, and the two spent much time together in Tesla's laboratory.

Twain patented three inventions, including an "Improvement in Adjustable and Detachable Straps for Garments" (to replace suspenders) and a history trivia game.[35][36] Most commercially successful was a self-pasting scrapbook; a dried adhesive on the pages needed only to be moistened before use.[35] Over 25,000 were sold.[

Twain's novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1889) features a time traveler from the contemporary US, using his knowledge of science to introduce modern technology to Arthurian England. This type of storyline would later become a common feature of a science fiction subgenre, alternate history.

In 1909, Thomas Edison visited Twain at his home in Redding, Connecticut and filmed him. Part of the footage was used in The Prince and the Pauper (1909), a two-reel short film. It is said to have been the only known existing film footage of Twain.

A bit on the "know it all" side for a gifted and talented writer to say thus and so about Adam and Eve. I enjoyed the book and could not put it down until the last paragraph and period.

...even Eve would agree. But don't read it from a modern-day work, take it from Eve, who started it all - with a little help. Every woman should read this book. And if you don't cry and love your husband more at the end, appreciating him for all his god-given foibles, there is something wrong with you. Bravo to Mark Twain and his imagination.

Not as humorous perhaps as Adam's Diary, but great all the same. And if you know THE APPLE TREE you'll discover the source for "What Makes Me Love Him?" in these pages.

Do plan on lots of time on the phone, resetting and reloading your nook, then you still won't be able to read it. This ebook won't load on the Nook, and they most certainly are not going to give a refund!
