Book Description
The definitive history of America’s greatest incubator of innovation and the birthplace of some of the 20th century’s most influential technologies From its beginnings in the 1920s until its demise in the 1980s, Bell Labs-officially, the research and development wing of AT&T-was the biggest, and arguably the best, laboratory for new ideas in the world. From the transistor to the laser, from digital communications to cellular telephony, it's hard to find an aspect of modern life that hasn't been touched by Bell Labs. In The Idea Factory, Jon Gertner traces the origins of some of the twentieth century's most important inventions and delivers a riveting and heretofore untold chapter of American history. At its heart this is a story about the life and work of a small group of brilliant and eccentric men-Mervin Kelly, Bill Shockley, Claude Shannon, John Pierce, and Bill Baker-who spent their careers at Bell Labs. Today, when the drive to invent has become a mantra, Bell Labs offers us a way to enrich our understanding of the challenges and solutions to technological innovation. Here, after all, was where the foundational ideas on the management of innovation were born.

Book Description
This is a personal story of the educational process at one of the world's great technological universities. Pepper White entered MIT in 1981 and received his master's degree in mechanical engineering in 1984. His account of his experiences, written in diary form, offers insight into graduate school life in general--including the loneliness and even desperation that can result from the intense pressure to succeed--and the purposes of engineering education in particular. The first professor White met at MIT told him that it did not really matter what he learned there, but that MIT would teach him how to think. This, then, is the story of how one student learned how to think. There have of course been changes at MIT since 1984, but its essence is still the same. White has added a new preface and concluding chapter to this edition to bring the story of his continuing education up to date.

Book Description
* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. In this summary, you'll learn all about the origins of modern communications by delving into the history of Bell Laboratories. You'll understand how innovation comes about through the collaboration of ingenious and creative minds. You will also realize that : the success of a company depends above all on the vision of the people who make it up; intellectual curiosity and audacity are two virtues that bring creativity; technological innovations are based on collective and interdisciplinary work; bell laboratories have above all worked to reenchant science. Founded in 1925, Bell Laboratories was created to develop the R&D (research and development) of American Telephone & Telegraph (AT&T), which then held a monopoly in the telecommunications sector. The goal was to create a system capable of connecting two people wherever they were and whatever the time of day. Today, this is not only the case, but it is also possible to exchange images and different types of data. Tens of thousands of scientists have succeeded one another, over several decades, to bring this vision to life. The Idea Factory, traces the lives of some of them: Mervin Kelly, Jim Fisk, William Shockley, Claude Shannon, John R. Pierce. All are bound by the faith they put into the mission of Bell Laboratories. *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!
