Sinopsis: Book by Weightman Gavin

Críticas: "Entertaining and informative." --John Steele Gordon, "The Wall Street Journal"
"Abraham Gesner is hardly a household name today, but this country-doctor-turned-geologist in Nova Scotia was the first person to transform the raw sludge of fossil remains into kerosene and other fuels. ... Gesner is but one of the fascinating characters Gavin Weightman brings to life in "The Industrial Revolutionaries," his engaging survey of the countless men and women who wedded technological innovation to capitalist profit or nationalist agenda, and in the process helped usher in the modern era. ... Weightman believes the industrial revolution was an incremental process in which credit for any innovation or invention rightly belongs to innumerable individuals scattered throughout the world. He is remarkably successful at capturing this process, skillfully stitching together thumbnail sketches of a large number of inventors, architects, engineers, and visionaries. ... Weightman expertly marshals his cast of characters across continents and centuries, forging a genuinely global history that brings the collaborative, if competitive, business of industrial innovation to life." --Stephen Mihm, The New York Times Book Review
"Refreshingly old-fashioned . . . In this lively study, there is little room for the dry academic prose that so often makes economic histories a painful reading experience. Instead we have a wealth of vivid portraits of figures from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. . . . Weightman is excellent at demolishing some of the myths of the industrial revolution." --Leo McKinstry, Literary Review
"The author of some fine business histories, Weightman elevates his game in this work. ... Integrating lively biography with technological clarity, Weightman converts the Industrial Revolution into an enjoyably readable period of history." --"Booklist"

[Weightman s] enthusiasm for his subjects, and his insistence that the Industrial Revolution was the doing of more than a handful of Great Men, propels the book forward. It's one that anyone with a passing interest in economic history will thoroughly enjoy. "The Seattle Times"
It is one of the pleasures of Weightman s book to see how technology rose above nationality. . . . The interconnectedness of this world of invention and technology is extraordinary. "The Sunday Telegraph"
A whirlwind tour-de-force of the foundations of industrialization. a popular, accessible history. Highly recommended. "Choice"
Swirling with seers, savants, and sorcerers of the mechanical age, every page of this epic saga will dazzle even the most technologically jaded reader. William J. Bernstein, author of "A Splendid Exchange"
