My books are passion projects. My topics come because I look for a book to buy on the subject and can’t find one. I know it’s supposed to be fancier than that, or that there must be some grand theory of my work, but there isn’t one. That said, my readers seem to enjoy what I’ve written, so maybe it’s fine?

I am inspired by my literary heroes, including Robert Caro, Laura Hillenbrand, Candice Millard, Daniel James Brown, and Barbara Tuchman, among many others. They are all rigorous researchers—but reading their books doesn’t feel like doing homework. That’s what I’m going for, and hopefully I hit the mark a few times.

For me, books are all-consuming projects, leaving little other time for the things that should populate this section like hobbies, interests, and even the ability to remain in basic touch with people. I enjoy obsessing over a subject for years, and my goal is to find as much information as possible and then make the material readable for a general audience. 

When not writing or reading, I spend time with my daughter in Brooklyn, NY.  If you’d like to connect, please drop me a line at hello [@] jimmysoni.com.

Fairfield Semiconductor – predecessor to Intel and other Silicon Valley tech co’s

Bell Labs had money and started as R&D Dept. in Bell Telephone

Bell Telephone ran all land lines in America, had a Fed guaranteed monopoly on the phone system

Bell invented touch tone dialing, transistor, satellite tech, cell tech, communication networks

We are all affected by Bell tech and inventions, modern age owes a solid to Bell

Had big group of talent and could afford all of it, leading scientists of the time.

During WW2 many major U.S. corporations – Bell, Ford were recruited by the US Government.

War effort created urgency – math used to shoot down the enemy.
