Bodanis's account of the history of electricity, the many discoveries along the way, and the implications those discoveries have had for our society is fascinating. Through personal stories and sample documents such as letters and journals, he humanizes the diverse group of thinkers and tinkers who changed our world. Adam Levy’s clear delivery surges with the excitement that characterized these inventors. However, he doesn't change emotional tone often, so the frustrations and tragedies that are part of the story lose some of their power.
