Reluctant Genius: Alexander Graham Bell and the Passion for Invention (Paperback)Charlotte Gray (author)
- Not available
In an intensely competitive age, Bell seemed to shun fame and fortune. Yet many of his innovations--electric heating, using light to transmit sound, electronic mail, composting toilets, the artificial lung--were far ahead of their time. His pioneering ideas about sound, flight, genetics, and even the engineering of complex structures such as stadium roofs still resonate today. This is an essential portrait of an American giant whose innovations revolutionized the modern world.
