Product description

Review

Hugely impressive. No one makes complex science more fascinating and accessible - and indeed more pleasurable - than David Bodanis (Bill Bryson)

A technological odyssey complete with heroes and villains, triumph and tragedy - a true scientific adventure (Simon Singh, author of BIG BANG and FERMAT'S LAST THEOREM)

Bodanis unpeels these layers of the electrical onion expertly; his writing is vigorous and sometimes ecstatic . . . ELECTRIC UNIVERSE is a high-voltage performance (DAILY MAIL)

A compelling, fast-paced read (OBSERVER)

Book Description

From the author of the bestselling E=MC2, a brilliantly descriptive analysis of one of the most powerful forces that controls the universe - electricity
