It's neither a Machine or a real Music topic, but I am opting for the music category because there is an audio aspect.

I would like to give a recommendation on a fantastic Edison biography that was quite thrilling like I never had expected any Edison biography could be. The book is "The Wizard of Menlo Park: How Thomas Alva Edison Invented the Modern World" by Randall Stross. Unlike most others, the author paints a portrait of Edison as a human being with all his successes but with lots of his mistakes as well. For those who prefer to hear it, there is also an unabridged audiobook version available on Audible, which I opted for.
