Abstract:

"Brings Bell's creativity boldly to life."- Scientific American". . . an engaging portrait of a truly impressive man."- Christian Science Monitor". . . rarely have inventor and invention been better served."- New York Times Book ReviewHere, Edwin Grosvenor, American Heritage's publisher and Bell's great-grandson, tells the dramatic story of the race to invent the telephone and how Bell's patent for it would become the most valuable ever issued. The book also looks at Bell's other extraordinary inventions: the first transmission of sound over light waves, metal detector, first practical phonograph, and early airplanes, including the first to fly in Canada. And it examines his humanitarian efforts, including support for women's suffrage, civil rights, and speeches about what he warned would be a "greenhouse effect" of pollution causing global warming.
