Thomas Edison: A Life From Beginning to End 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Interesting overview and timeline encapsulating Edison's mindset and fascination with how things work and his ability to envision possibilities. Also a good analysis of Edison's place in time and culture which provided the foundation for the common element in most, if not all, of his inventions: practicality. He lived in age requiring hard work, determination and dedication be applied to whatever he considered worth doing. Amazingly, after pushing aside factors of entertainment and personal pleasure (and the value of such) as he solved problems, he reflected upon the fact he "never worked a day in his life". He just had fun. An insightful quick read.
