What makes it interesting: As we move towards a more connected and automated world, the human response is fascinating.

Media: Historical Fiction
What makes it interesting: Great historical fiction read on the feud between Edison and Westinghouse told from the perspective of Westinghouse’s lawyer Paul Cravath. The book even includes a great prologue where Graham Moore shares fact, where he took liberties on actual events, and fiction.
