George Mandis, February 4, 2011 (view all comments by George Mandis)
If you're intrigued by the mad-scientist antics of Nikola Tesla, you'll enjoy reading about the lesser-known but equally-interesting Leon Termen. Electronic music? Espionage? KGB? Television? A predecessor to RFID? The scope of his inventions and scientific contributions are as all-over the map as his life was during the 20s and 30s.

Theremin is a well-written biography. Even if you know nothing about the instrument, the man behind the instrument is sure to intrigue you. A fascinating life. Love found, love lost, adventure, music, brilliance, science, politics, socialism, mystery. He lived it all. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the inventors, music, socialism, Russia, art, and with a general interest in biographies. With life as Leon Theremin's, the biography is sure to grip you... not a dull biography at all.
