My new book Curiosity and Hope: Explorations for a Better World, memoirs of Larry Kilham has just been released on Amazon.
My incredible life story takes you through many companies and adventures starting from growing up on a farm with electronics as a hobby. He stumbled into the transistor by experimentation and his electronics skills were important to stimulating his engineering education. Larry entered industry, and he shares his adventures in industrializing Saudi Arabia, multimedia publishing, tracking Russian submarines, planning new towns, selling machinery in Latin America, and founding two high-tech companies.
My curiosity in electronics began a process of discovery and education that led to a remarkable and happy life. Hopefully the new generations may gain some insights from his experience, particularly if they are oriented towards new discovery, technology, and ecology. There is plenty of interest here for parents and educators.
The story is told in an easy style as a continuous adventure and is illustrated with many photos.
