I have not, but see that it's available at the public library. I've read several books on Thomas Edison, he was responsible for a couple advancements of telegraph communications.

Have not read that one but I have read "Mr. Lincoln's T-Mails: How Abraham Lincoln Used the Telegraph to Win the Civil War ". I found it well written and interesting material. $2.99 for Kindle.
