Tube: The Invention of Television

Tube: The Invention of Television Lowest new price: $31.12
Lowest used price: $5.31
List price: $15.00
Author: David E. Fisher

The visionary eccentrics and hardboiled businessmen behind television’s inception come to life in this “gripping” (Booklist), “lucid and engrossing” (american Scientist) chronicle of patent races, marketing showdowns, and courtroom battles. Index; photographs.

Telling the tale of the corporate revolution that forever changed the nature of the individual is no easy task. Authors David E. Fisher and Marshall Jon Fisher have hidden their sociohistory between the lines of the exciting story of the race to invent television. Eccentric geniuses John Logie Baird (whose only other invention was stay-dry socks) and teenaged Utah farm boy Philo T. Farnsworth struggled with limited resources to produce the first television systems, but their greatest challenge was coming up against the giant corporations that had nearly infinite money and resources. Pitting these lone romantics against the collective will of RCA, Tube turns a history of science into a thrilling page-turner.
