Item description for My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla by Nikola Tesla...
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.

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.
Reviews - What do customers think about My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla?
A fantastic insight into a true genius Aug 10, 2008
Even though this is a very short book and only deals with the first half of Tesla's life, it still provides some fantastic insights into the life of a genius. Written by Tesla after some very traumatic experiences in his life, he still comes through as a very generous and forgiving man. When you read his version of the troubles with J.P.Morgan, you realise the myths that have accumulated around Tesla. Great read!!!
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
