Using heavy documentation, she traces Fessendens life as a series of confrontations and crises interspersed with several important achievements: the alternator principle, the first broadcast station (1906), and heterodyne theory. When it was published in 1940, The New York Times called Fessenden: Builder of Tomorrows, a valuable and entertaining biography. Books stated that this biography should be read by all who realize that creative ideas are the only hope of the nation and the race.
