If you want to read an outstanding, fantastically-written book on this subject [the battle of AC/DC or between Edison and Tesla/Westinghouse], read the historian, Jill Jonnes' book, Empires of Light. If you want to read a poorly written book, filled with the author's suppositions and opinions substituted for sourced fact, then waste your time on this book, which wasn't worthy of publication! [I doubt this author even began to comprehend Tesla's brilliance!]

I really enjoyed this book. The battle between George Westinghouse and Tomas Edison was shockingly (no pun intended) gruesome! Electrical con-men, spies, torture dead dogs and one famous elephant which helped create the electric chair. I can't say that the writing is all that great but the facts it presents are astonishing.
