From AudioFile:

Back in the fifties, Thomas Edison was quite rightly represented to us as the epitome of American industry and innovation. Some of us may have wondered how he did that. Gelb describes five principles derived from Edison's creative genius and provides a practical guide to help us implement our own "innovative potential." Rick Adamson gives a competent performance of this production. Like most works of its type, this is meant to appeal to the mind, not the heart, and Adamson's reading reflects this. He speaks clearly and at a consistent pace. Furthermore, he is expressive enough to keep the listener's attention, yet his tone is always appropriate to the text.
