The life of scientist Guglielmo Marconi reaches a bright vividness with the superb biography The Growing Dawn, by Mark Frutkin. With what is definitely one of the most engaging performances of a biography, Arthur Morey enraptures listeners with the life, accomplishments, and even surreal dreams, of one of the world's most important figures. While not a household name anymore Guglielmo Marconi, and his pioneering work with long-distance radio transmission - a discovery which much of our modern communication rests on - make this a fascinating listen. Whether you are a fan of the sciences, history, or just a lover of great biographies this piece will be wholesomely satisfying.
The year is 1901, a stormy Atlantic isolates two continents. An insignificant letter S. void of meaning but full of life rides the waves. The missing link. The Growing Dawn. Pure ship in the electric sea. The author reveals the magic order at the heart of Marconi's vision thus, defining new and authentic mythology relating the fascinating story of a quantum leap in the history of ideas.
