Jesse Hicks wrote a review on this book and after stumbling into it at the bookstore, I figured I'd pick it up.
The story of AT&Ts rise and fall has been a big part of my study in politics and economics, it is really refreshing to see the technical innovations of an industrial powerhouse. It makes a case for a research enabled and focussed innovations largely free from short-term thinking. The book takes a sympathetic look towards the monopoly and people behind the story of AT&T's Bell Labs.
What did you guys think of the book? If you're interested in technology and stories of innovators (Claude Shannon was a delight to read about.) then this book is for you.
