And this biography is also an enjoyable romp through early 20th Century America. Loaded with information that brings the Crosley brothers and their time to life, it is a must-read for anyone interested in 20th Century American history, or the history of 20th Century innovation.
Maybe I can sum up the importance of this book in just one sentence: The latter 20th and early 21st Century had a business genius named Steve Jobs, but before Steve Jobs, we had Powel (and Lewis) Crosley.
There are similarities between modern computer innovator Steve Jobs and radio innovator Powel Crosley Jr. Don't take my word for it. Read this book and decide for yourself.
