    When you find out that General Electric should actually have been named Tesla Electric, this man begins to get his due Not withstanding my respect for Edison, Tesla thought and ideas were light years ahead of Edison and I m not sure that is not the reason for their split Parts are laborious to read much, like reference materials are, and a degree in electrical engineering will definitely help The insight you will gain from your time spent with Tesla will amaze you and you l wonder what have we been doing for the last hundred years to catch up.I have read many biographies of great men of industry and thought and never before have I read about anyone with the shear multitasking ability in subjects 40 years to come Linus Pauling and Feynman are my favorite Nobel winners Only Fe...

    This rating needs qualifications As just a read, this was a three star for me I am in no way an electrician or engineer, so much of the content was beyond me However, as a read on electricity and engineering, it is a five star read I would recommend to anyone interested in electricity, energy, or innovations.Though admittedly beyond my knowledge base, I did pick up enough to recognize Tesla s genius at harnessing the energy that abounds in our world Tesla himself testifies to the energy filling all the world and filling us His observations on the eye were a highlight for me His use of magnets and reversing poles to keep large objects in motion so they can power other objects was and is nothing short of brilliant Once he figured out a few principles, he was able to vary them for different purposes In addition, his experimentation in light bulbs and luminosity contain vast insights into objects we now take for granted Without Tesla s work, I cannot imagine how far behind we would be i...

    Not for the layman.

    If you re interested in the history of the modern electrical world and have a background in electronics this is a riveting read If Basic Electronics was 30 years ago it s still interesting as the theory s and ideas of Tesla formed the base of what we learned at Allie Hall, Keesler AFB, Biloxi Mississippi If you don t have either of these interests but are interested in History there are better books about the early...

    On the title page Second Edition Dedication To his countrymen in Eastern Europe read Serbians this record of the work already accomplished by Nikola Tesla is respectfully dedicated Already in this case refers to before 1894 when the original edition was printed.Note that although the author of this book is listed as Thomas Commerford Martin and although a lot of the text is in Martin s voice some of it is direct quotes from Tesla s own writings lectures demonstrations etc.If you re planning to read this book from beginning to end rather than just using it for reference be sure to budget a LOT of time It literally took me YEARS to read it.Part of the problem is a dire need for not only a glossary but also a companion volume defining what the state of the art WAS at the time When Tesla says that he altered the standard design thus so and otherwise this is not very useful if you don t know what the standard design at the time WAS.With time and care it s possible to figure out some things The electron theory of electricity ap...

    This was a long dense book that was frankly over my head It consists mainly of technical descriptions of the many works of Tesla Eventually, I found myself skipping around to bits and pieces as much of the engineering specifics were lost on me The most interesting pieces for me were the transcripts of lectures Tesla had given I d also have been interested to know about the person who wrote the book It was written while Tesla was still working After just having read a book about the competition at the time between Edison and Tesla, among others and about the dedicated preference many engineers at the time had for one or the other knowing about the author would have given me a better idea of whether or not to take some of the authors thoughts and admiration with ...
