    6. Wow Oh my gosh I learned so much from this book Not a dull moment Thomas Edison had his hand in everything that marched us into the modern age Everyone should read this It s miraculous the way he thought to try new things and the way he was able to learn from what worked and what didn t Forget Harry Potter, I m a fan of The Wizard of Menlo Park


    7. A nice little biography, well illustrated which I love , a bit folksy in tone bleckk , comprehensive in an introductory sort of way A wonderful book for young readers to learn about Edison if only I could get of my students to be interested in biography High interest for someone like me who grew up in the town Edison that now encompasses Menlo Park.


    8. An infuriated personality who never stop innovating With out him, we wouldn t have seen the modern work His brilliance has pushed the human race forward A man who never gave up He will ever remains a legend.
