The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. That was Thomas Edison’s philosophy, and it led him to create the incandescent light bulb and illuminate the world with electricity. But that was just one of the many groundbreaking inventions Edison devised, many of which changed the shape of entertainment, industry, and everyday life. Meet the Wizard of Menlo Park, and see how he grew from a lonely, inquisitive boy who carried out experiments in his basement to the smart, enterprising, and imaginative inventor who gave us the stock market ticker, helped develop the phonograph and cinema, and even came up with the first storage battery and electric car.

Baker & Taylor
Profiles the inventor best known for his work with the incandescent lightbulb and the phonograph, as well as his rivalry with Nikola Tesla.
