Checking out history and maybe learn a little something

I just started reading The Idea Factory by Jon Gertner.  It tells the story of Bell labs from just after WWII to the mid ‘70s.  It has been getting good reviews from a wide array of disparate sources.  I like reading about the roots of modern technology, and this book promises to cover a great swath of it (the transistor, communication theory, operating systems, etc).  I will give a review of the book when I finish.
