It includes lectures, articles, and discussions—particularly those bearing on polyphase motors and the effects obtained with currents of high potential and high frequency—and gives us a rare glimpse of a genius at work.

A fascinating look at Tesla’s contributions to the history of electricity, including the electric motor that inspired Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors. Filled with Tesla facts and diagrams of his groundbreaking work, this is the perfect book for anyone searching for a Tesla biography focused on his scientific discoveries.

Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia in 1856. He emigrated to the United States in 1884 and worked for a short time for Thomas Edison. A pioneer in the field of high-tension electricity, Tesla made many discoveries and inventions of lasting value to the development of radio transmission and electricity, one of the most famous of which was the power system at Niagara Falls. He died in 1943.
