An incredible true story
This book is awesome all the way around!
Very well written, very well read, and an incredible true story about how "Edison General Electric" became just "General Electric".
Highly recommended for those who want to know more about Edison, Westinghouse and Tesla, and the roles they played in the electrification of the world.

I had a visceral response as I listened to the tales of the electrocutions of the various species of dogs. I actually fast forwarded after the first 5 or so minutes in hopes that the results they found in the first couple dogs would be enough to tell the story.
While Edison was brilliant and motivated he really didn't have much human velcro. This was dominant throughout this book.
I recommend this book because of the importance of history - and strangely enough, how things really haven't changed in 100+ years from a human interaction and business posture.
