Lambert's The Power Brokers: The Struggle to Shape and Control the Electric Power Industry, is a splendid overview of the history of the power business in the U.S.―Power Magazine
InThe Power Brokers, Lambert develops an exquisite case for viewing the construction of state regulatory regimes as a fundamental activity in the creation of the electric power industry. He masterfully shows that the history of deregulation in the power sector was in fact the insertion of a regulated market into the power generation and distribution system. Indeed, Lambert's book―presented in a wonderfully accessible biographical and straightforward historical style―is truly radical.―David C. Brock, Senior Research Fellow, Center for Contemporary History and Policy, Chemical Heritage Foundation

For anyone interested in or employed in the power-gen industry (especially millennials and younger) this book provides a great starting point by laying out the timeline of the industry and its pivotal players and events - setting a base for further exploration and learning.
Highly recommended, it was as exciting to me as Daniel Yergin's 'The Prize'.
