Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of Thomas Alva Edison (Landmark Books)?
If you want to know Edison, you MUST see it. Nov 17, 1998
I like to read his story because by this way I saw a lot of his successful experiments and magical inventions, I also saw his spirit of doing them. He never gave up and never feel sorry even when he knew that what he thought was wrong. he liked to find out the secrets of nature. I recommend this book, by reading this book, I learned lots about Thomas Edison, I stared to understand how special he was, and what a person he was. You will see how a genius struggled with his carreer and his hobbies. you will also see how he looked at this world different and how he insist on what he want.
