The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World - Randall E. Stross This book does a fine job of telling about Thomas Edison the inventor, but is seriously lacking in details about Thomas Edison the man. We learn hardly anything about his personal life beyond the most important facts while too much time is spent by comparison to his inventions. This book should have been better. A marginal three stars
