Frank Lewis Dyer was a lawyer and business man who helped Thomas Alva Edison with his corporate and legal affairs. Dyer began helping the inventor with his patents in 1897, but soon took charge of all of the genius's legal business. Frank also co-authored Edison's biography with Thomas Martin. Martin was an electric engineer as well as an editor. The two authors collaborated with Edison, so the book is very accurate. This work makes it clear that both authors were fans of the man they wrote about.
This biography is one that many people requested before it was written. People were very intrigued in the man and his inventions. Edison was very involved in his work, and was always thinking about how to get his inventions perfected. But this book also tells of the inventor's personal life.
Those interested in history would also find this audio book fascinating. People with a mechanical turn of mind might want to listen to this as well. Edison was not looked upon with favor in the schools of the day and mostly learned from studying books from home. Those that learn in a similar fashion would likely get a lot out of this too.
