How Henry Ford And Thomas Edison Killed The Electric Car
An interesting and more in-depth look at the Ford-Edison relationship is in the book: Internal Combustion by Edwin Black
While I don't agree with many of the conclusions Black comes to in this book, his historical research is pretty good and spends a good deal of time on both Edison and Ford.
How pro-hydrogen is he in the end?
I wonder how different things would be... would be now be low on battery-building elements and be touting how much oil there is in the ground and building gasoline engines as the future? Likely not, but still interesting.
He is very pro-hydrogen at the end. But it is a good read regardless. Very exhaustively researched and interesting. Even if you do have to take his conclusions with a grain of salt.
