Thunderstruck by Erik Larson. This isn't my favorite of Larson's books; however, it is an interesting look at the development of Marconi's wireless and the politics behind the success/failure of the invention, while also weaving in the story of Crippen, a man who murdered his psychologically abusive wife, which is what made wireless popular, when many doubted its usefulness.
