Nikola Tesla is one of my history crushes. I'm a huge science nerd and anything about Tesla is entertaining to me given he was the father of so many inventions that we still utilize today. Thomas Edison may get more fanfare than neurotic, eccentric and phobic Nik, but Nikola was truly the individual who pioneered so many of the electrical items that we use today. Thomas Edison just "commercialized" them more, so he got more wide-spread approval.

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.

An excellent read. Tesla explains some of his background and the way he thinks. He then explains his technology for trasmitting energy and information all over the world. It's amazing how closey his description matches the internet 100 years later. Read it, maybe someday we'll get past the societal issues that have delayed this tecnology for a full century.

Great short and concise information of Mr. Tesla's work. He was very intelligent and willing to think out side of the box. It is sad that history does not raise him up to the level so deserved since he was the one that created our electricity method used throughout the world.

I liked it. Would have liked it to be longer and more in depth, but it is his autobiography and he wrote it as he saw fit.
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.

Tesla's book is well worth reading. It was fascinating, from beginning to end. I had never read anything about him but was aware of the Tesla Coil. He had a great mind and invented many things. I plan on reading more about him and details about some of his inventions.

Nikola Tesla was a genius ahead of his time, with a strange understanding of birds. His writing is just as impressive as his work with alternating currents and left me entertained wanting to read more. He is sincere, witty, and delightfully entertaining describing his early life, and his journey to America. My only gripe with this book is the length, as it is not very long. Tesla is one of my favorite authors and I wish he devoted more time to writing.

My Inventions is an excellent complement to "The Life of Nicola Tesla - Prodigal Genius" by John J. O'Neill. It goes into more detail about his early life and inventions and contradicts some of the myths about his dealings with a major American banker. Nicola Tesla played a critical role in industry which has not been recognised.

Tesla is one of the most forgotten, or least mentioned inventor here in the US. If we were only smart enough to follow his suggestions and his plans for the defense of the United States, 9/11 never would have happened.
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.
