KIRKUS REVIEW

Another book with a vocational slant, this story of General Electric. Written by someone authorized by the company, it is more or less of an official record of the step by step progress from the first abortive attempts to harness power, to our electrically controlled world. The author died in 1922, and Pound has supplied a quick survey of the more recent period. But it is a book of interest to boys as a survey of the early years of development. There are better and more up to date books on the recent wonders of electricity.
