Electric Universe: How Electricity Switched on the Modern World
David Bodanis (au)
In the 1790s, Alessandro Volta began the scientific investigation that ignited an explosion of knowledge & invention, transforming our world. The force that once seemed inconsequential was revealed to be responsible for everything from the structure of the atom to the functioning of our brains. Bodanis weaves tales of romance, divine inspiration & fraud through lucid accounts of scientific breakthrough. The great discoverers come to life in all their brilliance & idiosyncrasy, including the visionary Michael Faraday, who struggled against the prejudices of the British class system, & Alexander Graham Bell, driven to invent by his forbidden love for a young deaf student. “A mesmerizing journey of discovery by a master science writer.”
