KIRKUS REVIEW

Close tie in with the General Electric's show at the N.Y. World's Fair, and the popularity of that show presages popularity for this book. This is the story of the lightning hunters, of what manmade lightning shows researchers. From Franklin to Steinmetz, this is history and biography of the search for electricity's secrets. Not a primer -- it demands brainwork on the part of the reader.
