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,…

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…

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.

Tesla, Westinghouse, and Edison are all well-known names, but until I read this novel about the lawsuits between Edison and Westinghouse, did I come to realize what a self-serving person Edison was. Told from the perspective of the young…
