Making Waves

book cover image Marconi

A little over a century ago the world went wireless. Cables gave way to radio waves, a revolutionary means of transmitting information almost everywhere.

Guglielmo Marconi was decorated by the Czar of Russia, knighted by King George V of England and awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics, all before the age of 40. Until his death in 1937, Marconi was at the heart of every major innovation in electronic communication.

He was courted by powerful scientific, political, and financial interests, and trailed by the media, which recorded and published nearly every one of his utterances.
