IEEE-USA's August Free E-Book: Thomas Edison--Man of the Millennium--Vol. 1: The Legacy

IEEE-USA's August Free E-Book Looks at the Legacy of Thomas Edison--The World's Greatest Inventor

Thomas Edison provided us with a lifetime legacy of highly creative invention.  He and his staff kept project details in the 4,000 lab notebooks they left behind. Edison may have spent a great deal of time in his labs, but he did not create all his prototypes himself. He personally handpicked his very capable staff, and worked with them to transform his ideas into three-dimensional models for testing. Hiring the right people was a hallmark of his most inventive mind.
