Meet the genius
From Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edmund Morris comes a revelatory new biography of Thomas Alva Edison, the most prolific genius in American history. Morris explored Edison’s five-million-page archive of papers and other artifacts. In the process he not only resurrected Edison as a human being, but as a polymath of staggering variety—Edison the botanist, the naval strategist, the chemist and telegrapher and audio producer and publisher. From age 12 Edison was an open floodgate of what he called “new things,” inventing the electric pen, the X-ray fluoroscope, earbuds, “talkie” movies, voice-activated motors, audio mail, tornado-proof houses, and countless other innovations. This is a fascinating biography of an amazing man.
