Though many biographies deal in part with the early lives of their subjects, few devote an entire book to the time before their great achievements took place and to the personality traits that would provide them with success in later life. Brown’s book on Thomas Edison gives us a look at the persistence and sense of wonder that enabled this great inventor to make the many contributions we take for granted today. By book’s end, readers will certainly understand and appreciate Edison’s quote that “I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.”
