Maureen A. Barrett and Michael J. Klementovich have collaborated on this thorough biography of the audio pioneer, Paul W. Klipsch. As engineer, geophysicist, entrepreneur, WWII veteran and musician, the authors trace the life accomplishments of this brilliant, yet eccentric man who besides founding the company that continues to be a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers, holds patents in the field of ballistics, acoustics and geophysics and is the namesake of the Klipsch School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New Mexico State University. Apart from his notable professional accomplishments, the authors illuminate Klipsch's private side and idiosyncrasies -- he is renowned for wearing a small button that says qbullshitq and his devotion to his wife, Valerie. Well-written and scrupulously researched, the book is an interesting portrait of a unique individual.Well-written and scrupulously researched, the book is an interesting portrait of a unique individual.
