Martin Cooper is an engineer, inventor, entrepreneur, futurist and author of Cutting the Cord: The Cell Phone Has Transformed Humanity. He is known as the father of the cell phone as he led the creation of the world's first handheld mobile phone at Motorola based on his work on pagers, two-way radio dispatch systems, quartz crystal manufacture, competing with AT&T and educating the FEC. As a wireless visionary, Marty reflects on the limitations of monopolies, the need to create technology that solves real problems, the drive of humans to be mobile, and the value of mobile enabled collaboration.
If you recognize the DynaTAC on the cover of Marty's book, you will definitely enjoy reading this memoir/history/leadership book. Insights about early projections of demand for cell phones will amuse anyone who can't imagine a time before that super computer in their pocket.
