Who Was Thomas Alva Edison?

One day in 1882, Thomas Edison flipped a switch that lit up lower Manhattan with incandescent light and changed the way people live ever after. The electric light bulb was only one of thousands of Edison’s inventions, which include the phonograph and the kinetoscope, an early precursor to the movie camera.

Here’s an accessible, appealing biography with 100 black-and-white illustrations.--from the publisher
