Going Deep

John Philip Holland and the Invention of the Attack Submarine

by Lawrence Goldstone
Hardback
Publication Date: 06/06/2017
RRP  $43.95 $41.25

Like Henry Ford and the Wright brothers, John Philip Holland was completely self-taught, a brilliant man raised in humble circumstances, earning his living as a schoolteacher and choirmaster.

But all the while he was obsessed with creating a machine that could successfully cruise beneath the waves. His struggle to unlock the mystery behind controlled undersea navigation would take three decades, during which he endured skepticism, disappointment, and betrayal.

But his indestructible belief in himself and his ideas led him to finally succeed where so many others had failed Going Deep is a vivid chronicle of the fierce battles not only under the water, but also in the back rooms of Wall Street and the committee rooms of Congress.

A rousing adventure--surrounded by an atmosphere of corruption and greed--at its heart this a story of bravery, passion, and the unbreakable determination to succeed against long odds.
