Thomas Edison is perhaps the best-known inventor in history, with the electric light bulb, the telephone, and the electricity generator being three of his 1,093 patents. In this captivating audiobook, his prolific creative career and fascinating personal life are performed by Stephen Thorne, alongside a full vocal cast. Thorne, who is best known for roles as villains on the long-running television series Dr. Who, brings a quirky, character-filled, and nuanced reading to Edison's life, ranging from his devotion to his loving mother to his grueling 20-hour-a-day work habits. Compelling and awe-inspiring, this audiobook will make listeners look twice at the everyday objects around them and realize Edison's pervasive influence.
