Also meet Beulah Henry, called "Lady Edison" by many; she was a prolific inventor. Many people have actually never heard of her despite her development of over 101 inventions! Be amazed by Henry Bessemer who played a critical role in steel making and steam engines which drove the industrial revolution and find out about George de Mestral whose ingenuity was responsible for Velcro, now used all over the world. It's a great example of the fact that behind every invention, there is an amazing story!
Each story comes to life through BioViews®. These are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. They provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.

Any additional comments?
The bios are told from the point of view of the person themselves. The fatal flaw in this is that the person will, by necessity, not dig into unpleasant areas of their history. I gave up on this recording very early when Henry Ford glossed over the issue of anti-Semitism.
It ends up being not biography (even the light bio / inspiration the author was going for) but rather shallow hagiography.
