Working in the copier industry I wanted to know about the technology that sits on a desk or takes up washing machine sized floor space in an office The key to understanding this technology is to understand the need for copies of writing pursued over the centuries in various methods dependent on the number and kind of copies desired So before diving into the modern day copier David Owen first gives us an engrossing summary of the machines with the exception of facsimile that people devised to copy printed matter He gives us this background to like the director of the film Gravity make us feel the pull of the planet when we get to the groundwork of understanding the inventor and invention of Xerography Chester Carlson and what he called electrophotography Owen carefully crafts our perception of Chester through the excruciating hardships he and his family suffered in the early 20th century He builds the properly elongated suspense of reading how Chet overcame obstacles in the patient almost uiet pursuit of his vision We re shown how the ultimate purpose of the copying process never left Chester s sight and indeed became validated as the machine took shape over decades under the care of physicists from Haloid and Batelle the only two organizations prescient enough to work toward realizing its commercial value Owen having laid the humble foundation of Carlson s mindset early on leads us toward the still surprising findings of Carlson s mind when he encounters the enormous riches his investment of thought effort time and savings brings We discover Carlson the humanist who gives his great wealth away and Owen gives us sufficient pause to consider that such people exist With superlative subtlety Owen pieces together a flowing history from mammoth caches of copies having achieved unprecedented access to Carlson and Xerox files He gives a splendid explication that will not be found elsewhere I find the world extraordinary having read Owen s story about Carlson and the invention of the xerographic process Working with Xerox euipment brings me great pride to know its usefulness but also the incredible toil it took to bring copies in seconds to light
