I found this easy read quite fascinating. I visited Baddeck a number of years ago and the Alexander Graham Bell museum. This little town is where Mabel, Alex and their family spent their summers and I had purchased a biography of Mabel. Shulman makes a compelling case to prove that Alexander Graham Bell is not, in fact, solely responsible for the invention of the telephone, and his research proves that Bell had stolen part of Elisha Grey's caveat, thus allowing him to win the race. Highly recommended read.
