I will warn you that these are the autobiographical notes of Mr. Tesla so they are done in his own words. This book is very data heavy and there are A LOT of technical terms that most people aren’t going to understand unless you’ve studied them and/or have read a lot of material on the subject. That being said, it really feels like you’re listening to Tesla explain his inventions and visions. I could almost picture myself sitting in a parlor with him, smoking a cigar and drinking some whiskey whilst we discussed the implications of such uses for his different inventions.
I would highly recommend to anyone who is already a Tesla fan and has an existing knowledge of the sciences used by Tesla. If this is your first foray into his work, you might want to look elsewhere.
Definitely worth buying and reading to understand how he thought and invented new technologies. I would have purchased it in book form if I'd known the kindle pictures would be so hard to see, even magnified.
Tesla does not make mention of his obsession with telepathic doves or aliens (something that happened to him later in life.) That
would have been interesting to read, I feel. Allegedly he reported to friends that his invention ideas were transmitted to him via telepathy allegedly from these sources, including his earlier inventions (Tesla coil, etc.) I suspect he was predisposed to a type of neurological illness similar to the gentleman in "A Beautiful Mind" who also, I am given to understand, felt many of his ideas came from outside sources. This type of disassociation may have allowed both of them to access and understand involved mathematical and engineering concepts in a savant-type way. Despite how it came about, they both undeniably gave us invaluable mathematical and physics principles that have been life-changing and useful to society to this very day. Tesla invented alternating current, as you know, as opposed to Edison's stubborn determination to stick to direct current. He is not vitriolic toward Edison in this book, which I found more than gracious considering other material I read on the great "alternating current vs. direct current" debate. I recommend this tome, but in book form, rather than kindle, so you can see the photos. diagrams and newspaper articles with greater clarity.
If he could have given electrical power to every place on the face of the earth, what would there have been to goto war over? Think of the direction the world would have taken.
This is a very good read and very though provoking.
