KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the life of Philo T. Farnsworth, which gives due credit to the man who at 15 envisioned electronic television. An inventive genius, Farnsworth early proved his unique ability, and without ever having been in a radio or research laboratory, diagrammed his brain child to an understanding high school teacher, in 1922. Four years later he found men who believed in his invention and backed him through experiment into the practical, commercial field. A story of perseverance, originality and a new science, told from intimate knowledge of the man.
