Book Description
Marconi's Miracle: The Wireless Bridging of the Atlantic by D. R. Tarrant is the story of Guglielmo Marconi and and the invention that changed the world. "One hundred years ago, on a cold and windy December afternoon in a small room of a former hospital on Signal Hill in St. John's, Newfoundland, three men hunched over a primitive radio receiver listening for a wireless signal from Cornwall, England," and the rest is history.

Marconi's Miracle is an account of Guglielmo Marconi's ambition to bring the world into a new age of communication. After seeing and being dissatisfied with the world's dependence on wires, Marconi set into motion events that would change the face of communications forever. This book details his brief but momentous visit to St. John's, Newfoundland, where he conducted the most important experiment of his life, the reception of a wireless signal across the vast Atlantic Ocean.
