Capturing the Light: The Birth of Photography, a True Story of Genius and RivalryCapturing the Light: The Birth of Photography, a True Story of Genius and Rivalry by Roger Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A well-written account of the struggle to invent photography. The two people involved, Daguerre and Talbot, are complete opposites with Daguerre the flashy Frenchman given to freewheeling experimentation and Talbot a button-down Brit conducting thorough research with meticulous note taking. It's a great story about a technology and art that changed the world.
