Thomas Edison passed on many decades ago, but his inventions still echo loudly through time. If you watch TV, listen to your favorite songs, or simply click on the lamp next to your bed, it was Thomas Edison who brought all of these innovations into the world.  

Inside you will hear about...  

  • Edison's early life  
  • The electric light  
  • The war of the currents  
  • Other inventions and projects  
  • Final years and death  
  • Edison's legacy  

 And much more! 

Edison is sometimes regarded as someone who loved arguing with other inventors who were going in different directions from him, yet his tenacity and dedication to his own work were what made so many of his inventions workable.  

No matter which way you look at Edison, from failed businessman, renowned inventor, distant father to his children, to an argumentative scientist, there is one thing everyone can agree on: Thomas Edison was pure genius. After all, in his world, nothing less would do.
