    His books are almost entirely constructed from interviews with Commodore engineers and managers. Being composed from first-hand accounts woven together, it is entirely subject to the memories of those interviewed. The author at least takes care to point out when accounts of the same event differ. Beyond Commodore’s public finances, quotes from magazines and news outlets, and old photographs, there are very few hard facts presented. There are footnotes and endnotes, yes, but rarely for a citation.

    That's unfortunate. I guess that Nikola Tesla really did invent alternating current.
