I am about halfway through the biography Tesla: Man out of time

I started reading one called The writings, inventions and researches of Nikola Tesla, but found that it went over my head pretty quickly. I also have a biography on Edison that I am looking forward to reading, when I get the time.

Anyone else have any good electrical related books that you would have enjoyed or would recommend?
