Tesla Inventions: AC/DC: The Savage Tale of the First Standards War Hardcover

by Ven

A book about the battle to determine how our electric power would eventually be delivered, at first glance this looks like the cover art for a famous rock group.

Author Tim McNichol explores the epic battle for control of the electrical industry that ensued about 100 years ago. In the one corner was Edison as proponent of direct current delivery and in the other corner were Westinghouse and Tesla as proponents of alternating current.

The eventual winner has been alternating current, and this book tells the true history and drama of how this came to be. You will find that the combination of history and technology makes for a fascinating book journey.
