Description

On December 16, 1947, the transistor was invented and the Information Age began. Crystal Fire recounts the story of the transistor team at Bell Laboratories headed up by William Shockley. While his colleagues went on to other research, Shockley grew increasingly obsessed with the new gadget and eventually formed his own firm, the first semiconductor company in what would become Silicon Valley.
