One of the great pioneers of electrical science, Oliver Heaviside (1850-1925) was a self-educated, fiercly independent genius who cared nothing for social or mathematical conventions. He showed how to analyse any circuit, how to rid telephone lines of distortion and interpreted Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism.Heaviside had a caustic wit, to friends he was provocative, amusing, sometimes infuriating but never dull. This is a compelling account of Heaviside's life with a powerful insight into his scientific thinking and why it has been so influential.
