really liked it

An engaging, readable history of the rise of the telegraph, a technology that changed the 19th century in arguably more profound ways than the Internet changed the 20th. I would have enjoyed the book much more if it had been footnoted; there are lots of details I'd like to explore further. The bibliography helps, but isn't nearly sufficient.
