More About Nikola Tesla
Inventor Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) emigrated to the United States from his native Croatia in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison. He contributed to the development of the alternating-current electrical system, which made the universal transmission and distribution of electricity possible. George Westinghouse purchased the patents to Tesla's induction motor and made it the basis of the Westinghouse power system, which underlies the modern electrical power industry.

Good quick life story Dec 12, 2007
I'm really a fan of Tesla and this book was a good view into him as a person. Although the exact same pages of this book can be found in the end portion of the book "The Nikola Tesla Treasury" and I highly suggest that book over this one.
Not worth the shipping Nov 26, 2007
Not what I expected. His childhood years were interesting. But I didn't finish it - and I really like books about inventors. Not enough info. His writing style is a bit hard to follow. Better to buy a bio written by somebody else. I rate it "One Induction Motor".
It's a look inside Nov 4, 2007
You really get a feel for the way he thinks, and his eccentricities from this book. If you want to know what it would feel like to talk to him then read this book. If you want an in depth biography I recommend Tesla: Man Out of Time
ok i guess Sep 27, 2007
Good book, it seems like its written funny,not sure how to explain it though. Alot of uncapitalized i's, was it even proofread?
The Practical Theoretician Sep 9, 2007
This is a great book which surfaces Tesla's biography, image of himself and of his internal mental processes. The way Tesla outlines his own internal thought processes and psychology is deeply interesting. I think anyone who aspires to be an inventory would be inspired by reading this book. Tesla's explanation of how he ran experiments in his mind without needing any interfering apparatus is inspiring to those who enjoy theorizing and exploring reality.
