This review is from: Faraday, Maxwell, and the Electromagnetic Field: How Two Men Revolutionized Physics (Kindle Edition)
I can't find the proper words to describe the emotions that were felt while reading the book. As an electrical engineer, I was familiar with the concepts behind the story. But learning how it was discovered, shows how great these men were. Maybe for the general reader, the book will not trigger these emotions. I always remember the joke among our classmates while we were studying Maxwell's theory: "And God said... Maxwell's equations... and there was light". I even have a t-shirt with that joke! It summarizes the beauty of these discoveries. The book made me want to travel in time to see first hand how these discoveries were made!
