“Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb” Reading List and Bibliography

"Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb" is a science kit that integrates invention and history along side science, technology, and math. Part of the creative process of designing our science kits is to do as much research as possible into the history of the invention and the inventor as well as the science behind the invention. To that end we have collected and read the following books relating to Edison, the Electric Light, and Invention in general. Many of these books are out of print, or are rare but you still may find them at your local library, used book store, via eBay, or via used books sold on Amazon.com and other websites.
