Nikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the twentieth century. Certainly he contributed more to the field of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead. Ultimately he died alone and impoverished having driven all of his friends away through his neurotic and eccentric behavior. Tesla was never able to fit into the world that he found himself in. This autobiography, originally serialized in Electrical Experimenter, is an intensely fascinating glimpse into the mind of a genius, his inventions, and the magical world in which he lived.

A frustratingly tiny glimpse into the life and mind of a genius. Tesla not only invented some of the electrical systems devices that became the foundation of modern life but foresaw other developments such as nuclear power, the computer and the positive impact that worldwide distribution of information, like the Internet, would have on humanity. This book was fascinating and funny I just wish it was longer.more
