About this title


This inspiring science book from National Geographic illustrates the quest towards the future of technological development.

Transistors are a vital part of almost every electronic device we use today. Tiny transistors joined together as integrated circuits are used in all our powerful computers. The story behind the invention of the transistor traces advances in science and math from the earliest mechanical calculators used thousands of years ago to the breakthrough invention of the solid-state amplifier by Bell Labs in the 1940s. The strong personalities, fortunate accidents, and challenging research behind these advances bring science to life in Digital Revolution.

Glen Phelan's lively text examines the complex history of the tiny transistors that have come to power our modern electronic world.
