Review: AC/DC: The Savage Tale of the First Standards War
AC/DC: The Savage Tale of the First Standards War by Tom McNichol
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wars are always interesting, and as most wars this one was very dirty and not without casualties.
I liked a lot this book, because it explains very well the technical differences, advantages and problems in both electrical systems, and it also gives a nice introduction to the people involved in the war.
What I didn't like very much is that the book is very much Edison centered, leaving Westinhouse and specially Tesla relegated to a second plane.
