Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0801852633, Hardcover)

The innovative founder of the Eastman Kodak Company was not generally known for his thirst for adventure, his love of art and classical music, or his philanthropic activities, yet these were all important aspects of the man. George Eastman (1854-1932) was a complicated individual who lived most of his long, industrious life out of the public eye; his private affairs both admirable and dubious are now out in the open, thanks to this scholarly and scrupulous biography. Eastman is revealed as cold, shrewd, modest, and surprisingly generous in this colorful portrait. The text is appropriately enhanced by a number of rare photographs.

A biography of the man whose inventiveness and business savvy led to the creation of the Kodak company and transformed photography from a combersone professional activity to a point-and-click hobby enjoyed by people around the world.
