Michael Faraday, Father of Electronics
Michael Faraday, inventor of the electric motor, transformer, and generator - who is now considered today the father of electronics - was once warned that he would probably amount to nothing! And to most people, that would have been a fair guess. After all, he left school at a young age, had only the rudiments of an education, and was hindered by a speech impediment his whole life (he couldn't say his 'r's). However, with humility, faith and persistence, he overcame his background and set his mind to developing the inventions that would propel the world into the modern age. Author Charles Ludwig traces the life of this famous, God-fearing scientist from a young boy to his death in 1867, in a highly readable, fictionalized account that is sure to hold the interest of even the non-science minded. Doesn't it make you wonder what God can do with your life? 208 pgs, pb.
