Wow! If you are an American history nerd, read this book! I found myself continually amazed that the story this book tells has not been adapted into a series. The delusional hubris of the assassin is bonkers, the ignorance and arrogance of the doctor is maddening, and now I just really want to find a book on Alexander Graham Bell. There‘s even some political villainy. Seriously. If you like history, give this a go.
