Several biographies of Thomas Edison have appeared in recent decades. One of the strengths of Randall Stross' The Wizard of Menlo Park is that it emphasizes how Edison's story is relevant to current issues in the economics of invention, entrepreneurship and technology.

In the next several weeks, I will quote some of the more thought-provoking stories and observations in the Stross book.


The Stross book is:

Stross, Randall E. The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World. New York: Crown Publishers, 2007.
