Summary
"In a story that is both of its time and timeless, Schwartz tells a tale of genius and greed, innocence and deceit, and corporate arrogance versus independent brilliance. In other words, the very qualities that have made this country - for better or for worse - what it is." "Many men have laid claim to the title "the father of television," but Philo T. Farnsworth is the true genius behind what may be the most influential invention of our time. Farnsworth may have ended up a footnote in history, yet he was the first to demonstrate an electronic process for scanning, transmitting, and receiving moving images, a discovery that changed the way we live."--BOOK JACKET
