The book explains events Tesla saw growing up which piqued his interest, leading to some of his projects later in life. The book concentrates on his inventions, taking them from his incredible visualizations to finality, for the ones that made it that far. The descriptions of their electrical functionality are probably going to be hard to follow for someone without a science background.
The author also shows how Tesla was a "big picture" guy and a poor business manager, resulting in his lack of funds throughout the later years of his life... but what a life it was.
