Bell Labs and the Great Age of American InnovationTraces the origins of some of the twentieth century's important inventions. This title tells the story about the life and work of a small group of eccentric men - Mervin Kelly, Bill Shockley, Claude Shannon, John Pierce, and Bill Baker - who spent their careers at Bell Labs.
Jon Gertner grew up in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey-just a few hundred yards away from Bell Labs. He has been a writer for the New York Times Magazine since 2004 and is currently an editor at Fast Company magazine. He lives in New Jersey, with his wife and two children.
"Filled with colorful characters and inspiring lessons . . . The Idea Factory explores one of the most critical issues of our time: What causes innovation?" - Walter Isaacson, The New York Times Book Review "Riveting . . . Mr. Gertner's portraits of Kelly and the cadre of talented scientists who worked at Bell Labs are animated by a journalistic ability to make their discoveries and inventions utterly comprehensible-indeed, thrilling-to the lay reader. And they showcase, too, his novelistic sense of character and intuitive understanding of the odd ways in which clashing or compatible personalities can combine to foster intensely creative collaborations." - Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "One of the best innovation-focused books I've read: It's a wide-ranging, detailed, and deeply fascinating look at the New Jersey lab which has been churning out useful discoveries since the early 1900s." - The Boston Globe "Fascinating history . . . the research behind The Idea Factory is astonishing." - Slate Book Review "Compelling . . . Gertner's book offers fascinating evidence for those seeking to understand how a society should best invest its research resources." - The Wall Street Journal "An expansive new history . . . does an impressive job of illuminating many of Bell Labs' key technological triumphs." - Wired.com
