A comprehensive biography and textbook,
This review is from: Innovate Like Edison (Hardcover)
This book is excellent. It is beautifully written and extensively illustrated with photographs and diagrams of the great man himself and his inventions.
The book begins with a comprehensive and engaging biography and then leads logically into a breakdown of Edison's genius into 5 core competencies, each composed of 5 subcompetencies (25 in total).
Whether you adopt the whole system, or simply some basic principles, this book is certainly inspirational.
I bought Axelrod's "102" lessons book on Edison at the same time as this book. Gelb and Caldicott's book blows Axelrod's very poor volume right out the water. Don't go there....
