Norman Rubin looks back a lifetime working on fascinating engineering projects in this autobiography.

Born in the Bronx, New York, just as World War II was starting, he attended the New York City school system and graduated from Evander Childs High School, where he met his future wife, Judy.

He attended the City College of New York, graduating with a degree in electrical engineering, which gave him the foundation to launch an exciting career as an engineer.

Specializing in circuit and system design, he worked on sonar, radar, secure data and voice transmission, power conversion and biomedical instrumentation.

He led the team that designed the voice communication system for the space shuttle, and in the 1960s, he worked on a program called the orbiting astronomical observatory, which led to the Hubble telescope.

In the mid-1970s, he led the team that advanced the technology that made innovations like the cell phone possible. He also designed highly stable circuits that were used on the flight test program of the Boeing 757 and 767.

Join the author as he recalls an incredible career spent at the forefront of innovation.
