      [ Signor Marconi's Magic Box: The Most Remarkable Invention of the 19th Century By Weightman, Gavin (Author) Paperback ]: Weightman, Gavin: Books - ews: 7. Signor Marconi's Magic Box (Book): Weightman, Gavin: The world at the turn of the twentieth century was in the throes of Marconi-mania-brought on by an incredible invention that no one could quite explain, and by a dapper and eccentric figure (who would one day win the newly minted Nobel Prize) at the center of it all. At a time when the telephone, telegraph, and electricity made the whole.   Took this book to Arizona last winter to read. And what a great read it was. Learn the history of radio and how it developed through the efforts of Marconi himself, constantly striving for greater and greater distances of transmission, using larger and larger antennas and transmitters. If you love radio like I do, you will love this book.
