I Invented the Modern Age

praise for

I Invented the Modern Age is the amazing story of an amazing man, told with wit, insight, style, and zest. Richard Snow makes the invention of the automobile intelligible and fascinating even to car ignoramuses such as myself. His story of the man is simply riveting. This is history as it should always be told. — Kevin Baker, author of Striver’s Row

A Measureless Peril

“By way of a great raft of sea-stories, each impeccably told and perfectly turned, Richard Snow has transformed the faraway and half-forgotten world of the Atlantic convoys into a narrative as touching and exciting as it is melancholy and memorable.  This is a valuable book: few better accounts have ever been crafted about this cruelest of wars, fought for year after year on the most imperturbably cruel of the world's great oceans.”
