Originally written in 1919 there are few (possibly no) edits that I could surmise. This fact along with the the narrative style itself made it a somewhat challenging though highly authentic, informative and entertaining read.
Of course Tesla is experiencing a bit of a Renaissance these days though still I was shocked to learn of his productivity and impact on the development of the world’s electrical equipment and power generation.
Tesla was a genius right up there with other inventors and game changers of his time though he was clearly a bit eccentric and controversial which is likely why we don’t know as much about him as Edison, Ford, Einstein and other giants of the same era.
This book works on a number of levels. For anyone interested in US or World history or technolgy or science or even if you are just interested in knowing a bit more about the man who Mr Elon Musk named his company and incomparable electric cars after this book is good investment of time and money (2.99 USD)
Liberal arts curriculum.
It is invaluable as psychohistory, to understand the mind of this great inventor.
It doesn't hurt that it is fluidly written.
I do not understand the technical aspects completely, since I have not studied
Math and physics beyond the high school level. Whatever university courses I
Have taken, I have ignored.
Tesla may have scoffed at the mystical dimensions, which I do not, since I have seen
Some. Due to his empiricism, for the most part he was a clear-thinking man.
It broke my heart that so many were lined up behind him to take advantage of him.
TAKE THAT BACK, IT ANGERED ME THAT SO MANY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HIM!
Very good book,but, I'm hope I'm around for the next episode when KARMA GETS THOSE GREEDY BUGGARS that didn't treat him right.
"Life is as shakie as a Fiddler on the Roof !"
When I meet Tessla in the next life I'll be giving him a "HEART TO HEART HUG !"
PEACE BE WITH HIS SOUL.
Thus, tale after tale of how Tesla barely escaped death. Tale after tale about how he worked near miracles as a child. All these stories leave the reader wondering whether there isn’t a deliberate play on words in the title My Inventions. Is Tesla letting us know that, along with his scientific inventions, he is similarly inventing his own biography?
In some ways a scientific memoir in other ways not much different from medieval legends. Tesla’s father wanted him to be a cleric and so the comparison with medieval legends may not be too much of a stretch. Even so, encountering this enigmatic man who created so much of modern electronics is mostly a pleasure and one I would recommend. If one can catch glimmers of the truth in even the fairy tales of bygone days, how much more can one benefit from reading the brief memoir of Nikola Tesla.
