Invented the Niagra power system that made Edison's obsolete Sold Westinghouse 40 patents that broke a General Electric monopoly Discovered the radio methods that Marconi converted into a fortune Built a radio-guided torpedo before Ford ended the horse-and-buggy era Tried, with J.P. Morgan's backing, to change the earths electric charge!

The book itself is great , however this version is very bad, not containing any diagrams or photographs showing the inventions discribed by Tesla. In addition, there are multiple spelling mistakes and the book is poorly put together hence the low cost.

Written in very good detail, certainly N.T was way ahead of his time and he was also a very strange individual that invented by using his dreams and visions. He was never good in selling his inventions rather he gave his inventions away to others that made millions and left him alone and broke feeding his pigions. His best inventions were certainly the 3 phase induction motors, the 3 phase generators and the 3 phase high voltage distribution system. Highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Science.

I purchased this book for a friend of mine who is a huge 'admirer' of Tesla. The book is very inexpensive but it's also thin. My friend hoped for some original Tesla's drawings and some photos. None of that but still it is a good book. I guess I'll try ordering something 'bigger and richer'. However, it is what it is ....
