This was a delightful story about the development of the telegragh, the key players involved and how that technology changed communications.
The books moderate length was written in a well balanced manner. It is quite intertaining and full of interesting storries and facts.
I give Tom Standage a thumbs up for this writing. It has been on my shelf of books to read for some time. I am really glad I picked it up and read it.
I have been in the telecommunications field for over 30 years. I have found this book to be very educational as well. The author defends the title well by making a parallel connection to the Internet of today. I was not disappointed in anyway with Mr. Standage's ability to tell this story. Great job!
