Scientists have known about simple kinds of electricity for more than two thousand years. Only in the last two or three centuries, however, have people understood electricity well enough to put it to use. This book traces the history of electrical discovery from ancient Greek experiments with static electricity to Benjamin Franklin's famous kite experiment to today's work with superconductivity.
