3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed blessing - Fabulous Read - Poor Print 31 Aug. 2007
By Data Scourge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very badly reproduced reprint of the article written by Tesla from Century Magazine. The entire document looks like a cheap photocopy and the contrast of the photographs makes them useless as a reference. The booklet contains ~38 pages of Tesla's musings which show him a man ahead of his time in 1900. The rest of the book (over 1/2) is a collection of "Mystical Drawings" also badly reproduced. Kessinger Publishing spared all expense in throwing this document together and did not give this visionary, his philosophies, nor his predictions the deserved treatments.

Due to the poor quality of the text and photos, I give it a 1 but the author a 5+!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solving a Problem With No Easy Solution 17 Sept. 2009
By Elliot Malach - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book offers a great insight into the mind of one of the geniuses of all time. Tesla converts how we reach enlightenment (increasing human energy) into a mathematical equation and shows how we can achieve that end.

He discusses how to end war, or the wasteful use of human energy, a negative force, to how to obtain positive energy cheaply, to energy transmission throughout the planet. Like most of the ancient philosophers, he was both a man of science and a man of religion and spiritualism.

The only downside to the book is that he refers to drawings of some of his experiments, but there are none in the book. It would have been nice to see these, no matter what the quality.

It is short, 80 pages, and an easy, worthwhile read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tesla the unsung hero 7 Jan. 2008
By Gary T. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As I learn more about Tesla, I have come to realize that Edison and his supporters have done this genious a great wrong. Much of our electric comforts and wonders are founded in the aspiration of Tesla, not Edison. This book will provide insight to the depth of the man, but it alone can not encompass Tesla's true genious. I would recommend reading some background info on Tesla prior to develing into this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our world today, seen from the past 28 May 2010
By Jeremy W. Gragg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In this book Tesla explores the various means by which we can and must increase our energy. He also foreshadows many modern technologies such as a means to communicate with anyone around the globe instantly (the internet), and many of the green technologies we see today. Throughout the book Tesla makes stunning predictions that reveal his unique insights into what the future would (and has) become. He also outlines solutions to some of our modern problems such as overpopulation by increasing energy.

It is a very unique book from a very intelligent scientist and I would highly recommend this book for everyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Copied Work of Nikola Tesla 21 Aug. 2012
By AB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Nikola Tesla is a remarkable visionary... unfortunately the Kessinger reproduction of his work is awful. The May 23, 2010, ISBN-10: 1161355774/ISBN-13: 978-1161355772 hardcover version of this book is a badly scanned copy of the Century Magazine publication, which can be viewed freely all over the internet. The Kessinger version literally looks like someone scanned a PDF copy of the document, faxed it, and then scanned it a few more times. Due to this, the text is extremely hard to read and all of the inspiring images have turned to black splotches. No effort in reimaging or restoring the work at all. The content is five stars, but this version is one star.
