From Tesla with love: Jane Brox's book about artificial light

A friend of mine suggests me a new book for my wishlist and I want to do the same with you:

Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light (Hardcover)
by Jane Brox
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010
368 pp., ISBN 978-0547055275

If you want to know something more about electricity, artificial light, home lighting, Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla, it's the book for you.
I consider Tesla a really incredible 'character'. If you haven't already done so, watch The Prestige by Christopher Nolan! It's a great movie and Tesla is played by David Bowie.
