Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg contributed to a Silicon Valley and Hollywood-inspired reading list published Friday.
Zuckerberg recommended “The Last Days of Night” by Graham Moore — a novel about Thomas Edison’s electricity monopoly and how he protected its growth by pushing competitors out of business.
Competition - Nation - Edison - Westinghouse - Tesla
“It’s about the competition to electrify the nation between Edison, Westinghouse and Tesla,” Zuckerberg told NBC’s Dylan Byers, author of the Byers Market newsletter. “Graham is a great storyteller.”
The 2017 book has 4.4 stars and 24,293 reviews on the book review site Goodreads.com.
New - York - Gas - Lamps - City
“New York, 1888. Gas lamps still flicker in the city streets, but the miracle of electric light is in its infancy. The person who controls the means to turn night into day will make history — and a vast fortune,” a description for the book reads.
“A young untested lawyer named Paul Cravath, fresh out of Columbia Law School, takes a case that seems impossible to win,” it says. “Paul’s client, George Westinghouse, has been sued by Thomas Edison over a billion-dollar question: Who invented the light bulb and holds the right to power the country?”
