520    "The extraordinary life and career of the iconic twentieth
       -century inventor, technologist, and business magnate H. 
       Joseph Gerber is described in a fascinating biography 
       written by his son, David, based on unique access to 
       unpublished sources. A Holocaust survivor whose early 
       experiences shaped his ethos of invention, Gerber 
       pioneered important developments in engineering, 
       electronics, printing, apparel, aerospace, and numerous 
       other areas, playing an essential role in the 
       transformation of American industry. Gerber's story is 
       remarkable and inspiring, and his method, redolent of 
       Edison's and Sperry's, holds a key to a restored national 
       economy and American creative vitality in the twenty-first
