Praise

Praise

"By focusing on the social and economic differences among Nikola Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, and Thomas Edison, as well as their shared hunger for making monumental discoveries in electronics that could—and did—alter the modern world, the writer and the artist show plainly that an inventor’s creativity is but one ingredient in his or her achievements and that commercial success takes a toll on the inventor’s life outside the lab. . . Helfand’s solid research is a great jumping-off point for student researchers." — Francisca Goldsmith, Booklist
