In this historical fiction I not only learned a ton about Edison, Westinghouse, and Nikola Tesla, but couldn’t put the book down through all their legal battles and back-stabbings. It’s told through the voice of Paul Cravath, Westinghouse’s young lawyer, whose method of law office organization is still the model for lawyers today. It spills the beans on the greed, deceit, genius and egocentricity when inventors were changing the world in the late 1800s. And, for good measure, reveals the real-life love story between Cravath and opera singer Agnes Huntington. Well researched and thoroughly absorbing.
