George Westinghouse: His Life and Achievements, 1925
George Westinghouse is the man who made rapid transit manageable. Modern transportation would have gotten nowhere but for him. The swift, steam-driven wheels of transportation might have remained as unsafe as TNT if George Westinghouse had never hitched his air brakes to them. He made it safe to go fast by showing us how to slow down, to stop. This little book gives a biographical sketch of this fascinating man.
