Product Description

Blue Skies is the first complete history of cable television, the most influential technology affecting the lives of almost every American.  Author Patrick Parsons writes about the early days of cable -- they go back farther than most people know -- and the pioneers in the last half of the twentieth century whose business skills, entrepreneurial instinct, and luck all played out to give rise to the most ubiquitous technology in the country-- still outpacing computers and the internet -- cable TV.
