Almost reads as a self help book for those who are inclined the be inventive, or someone who wants to become very sucessful but has doubts about what it takes to become what their dreams are. Great story, enjoyable read . Setting the tone for Nicola Tesla who is the middle of a fight, but today will are still seeing a fight between two companies name Nicola and another named Tesla. Each chapter starts off with a comment that people like Steve Jobs, Edison, Fuller and others have espoused what it takes to make your dream come true even after so many failures.
I liked reading this book. It is historical fiction, but at the end in "Notes from the Author" he goes into his research and comments on how much of the story is based on actual facts, placing the timing to suit his story. It was filled with tension at times. Very enjoyable.
Do you feel left behind by all of the STEM and STEAM talk? Well, here's a book for you! In this fast-paced, short-chapter thriller, you'll get a good dose of science and technology - with a little romance & mystery thrown in. It's about the real-life battle between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over how the U.S. would be electrified. Would the winner be DC current (Edison) or AC current (Westinghouse)? Read about the dirty tricks, devastating betrayals, and industrial spies while you bone up on the fundamentals of electricity. Bonus: you get to know why Tesla is so important in the history of science and technology (so influential that he has a car named after him!) Put an end to your insecurity about science - read this book.
Historical fiction thriller with a bit of romance based on facts. Enjoyed the flow and writing of this engaging tale formed around actual events. I felt engaged and pulled in to the story and learned a little more of our history along the way.
A fascinating tale about how big business works, made even more so because it was grounded in reality. Entertaining and informative.
Part historical fiction, part legal thriller with a hint of romance. This is a fictionalized account of the War of Currents that occurred between powerhouses Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. I loved the short chapters, the well-developed characters, and I learned a lot about a subject that I knew almost nothing about. Bonus: The author's notes at the end that explain what was fact and where he took some liberties.
An engaging, well-written story. After reading it, I enjoyed Moore's comments at the end about how he worked with the actual history to create the story he told so well.
Wonderful historical fiction. I couldn't put it down.
A compelling telling of the infamous legal battles between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over the design of the light bulb. Told from the perspective of the young attorney who acts as George Westinghouse’s legal counsel, this book is a must-read for those who love science-themed historical fiction.
Great book.....I learned a lot....
