This book demonstrates that Edison's invention of the light bulb was not simply the work of an individual, creative inventor, but rather the product of a lengthy process in which Edison effectively: (1) drew upon knowledge about other research efforts concerning electric lighting; (2) applied his creative genius and strong perseverance; (3 Cited by: 3. Amazon Best Books of the Month, July In Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light, Jane Brox illuminates the fascinating and forgotten history of man-made light, tracing its development through centuries of sputtering, smoking candles, to the gradual refinement of gas and, finally, electric captures the sense of wonder that permeated the Chicago World's Fair as 4/4(41).

The social and economic impact of the electric power and light industry, which began its rapid development during the last quarter of the nineteenth century, has been so great that some refer to the twentieth century as the "Age of Electricity." Not only have such giant companies as .

In he had started his own company, The Swan Electric Light Company, and started commercial production. In , American Thomas Edison adopted Swan's incandescent light bulb using a carbon filament in an oxygen-free bulb after failures with other designs. The following year, the Brush Electric Company began selling lamp sets of these impressive arc lights and their requisite generators. Because they were so bright, the lamps were mostly used in huge factories, retail settings, or outdoor public spaces like the Great White Way, an illuminated section of Broadway between Madison Square and Union Square in New York City.   It also led to new energy breakthroughs -- from power plants and electric transmission lines to home appliances and electric motors. Like all great inventions, the light bulb can’t be credited to one inventor. It was a series of small improvements on the ideas of previous inventors that have led to the light bulbs we use in our homes today.   I highly recommend 'Electric Powertrain: Energy Systems, Power Electronics and Drives for Hybrid, Electric and Fuel Cell Vehicles' by Dr John G. Hayes and Dr G. Abas Goodarzi. I use this book as my core teaching text on my module Transportation Power and Systems 3, which I teach to third year BEng and MEng Mechanical Engineering undergraduates.
