A good biography of an incredible man.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wizard: Life and Times of Nikola Tesla (Citadel Press Book) (Paperback)
Nikola Tesla was a genius, so why didn't I know anything about him until recently?
This book answers that question.
His life was full of poor business decisions, unscrupulous business partners, competitors who blatantly stole his inventions, and never ending patent litigation, yet he never gave up hope that his inventions would change the world.
I have to admit that I found this book hard in places. It is quite a daunting book too, printed in a fairly small font and spanning around 500 pages. I also had a few problems with the author's style.
Written supposedly in a straight chronological sequence, the author would would sometimes jump around from topic to topic and year to year seemingly at random.
It is definitely worth persevering though as the sheer amount of information it contains about this incredible man is just astounding!
Tesla's hope that one day he would change the world for the better may still yet come true.
