While discussing the inventions of American John Worrell Keely, the author, Theo Paijmans, covers much of the history, evolution, and intrigue of the free energy controversy. The more you know of the players, the more pertinent the book is likely to be. You'll find Keely connected to all the usual suspects in the Theosophical chain (Bulwer-Lytton and especially his novel, The Coming Race; Madame Blavatsky, who writes chapter on him in The Secret Doctrine; Rudolph Steiner, who talks of Keely in several lectures even after he was supposedly proved to be a hoax. Keely's work cuts across that of Tesla, John Jacob Astor, and even the proto-Nazis, List and von Liebenfels. Paijmans does not solve the mystery but his closing chapters propose some reasonable theories still relevant today. It would seem that the same organizations that opposed the natural gift of free energy in Keely's days in the latter half of the 19th Century are still doing the same at the start of the 21st Century. Serious food for thought for those who don't mind their free energy seasoned with the occult.
This book is well worth reading. I highly recommend picking up a copy as soon as possible and read this fascinating account of the brilliant man John Worrell Keely.
