KIRKUS REVIEW

John Floherty gives youngsters straight facts in the matter of fact fashion they prefer. For his latest explorations into the realms of man's technical achievements, Mr. Floherty takes the field of communications. Bell, Marconi, Morse, Sarnoff and others are handled from the angle of biography cum the development of industrial and scientific work their contributions made possible. There's enough anecdotal material from factual history to liven the pattern -- the laying of the Great Eastern's cable, the work of the new agencies, the Bell Telephone Laboratories- these enrich the reading and widen horizons.
