"The extraordinary life and career of the iconic twentieth-century inventor, technologist, and business magnate H. Joseph Gerber is described in a fascinating biography written by his son, David, based on unique access to unpublished sources. A Holocaust survivor whose early experiences shaped his ethos of invention, Gerber pioneered important developments in engineering, electronics, printing, apparel, aerospace, and numerous other areas, playing an essential role in the transformation of American industry. Gerber's story is remarkable and inspiring, and his method, redolent of Edison's and Sperry's, holds a key to a restored national economy and American creative vitality in the twenty-first century."--

This is really an incredible book about a little known but great inventor and thinker who made the underlying inventions - - the inventive infrastructure as it were - - which allowed for the well known inventions and designs we are well familiar with today. And the inventor's son writes quite nicely about his dad!
