4.0 out of 5 starsAchieve success through failures!
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2016
I used to idolize this man when I was a kid because of his unnatural way of enduring failures in order to become successful. This story of how Thomas Edison has journeyed his way to success is a great eye opener. With this book, my eyes were opened that failures are not obstacles, rather they are stepping stones to improvement and success. This book has given me so much insights and explanations of the life that Thomas Edison had. This is a very good book to read and is very helpful.

I must say I bought this book out of curiosity having heard so much about Thomas Edison. And I sure did not regret it because I learned so much about the man behind the fame.His only invention that I knew about was the light bulb but was amazed to learn that he is also behind the invention of the phonograph which is the father of recorded music! and many other inventions! I also learned that his success was not instant and he went through many failures before making it! the book is a wonderful read. For those who enjoy reading about people,memoirs and that sort of thing, you will definitely enjoy Thomas Edison's story and I will no doubt recommend the book to all.
