Nikola Tesla is the true unsung prophet of the electronic age, without whom our radio, auto ignition, telephone, alternating current power generation and transmission, and television would all have been impossible. Yet, his life and times have vanished largely from public access. This autobiography gives a unique and personal account of different periods in his life. From Tesla's early life to his end, he embraced a persona of brilliance, ambition, and creativity.
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist, who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen.

Written by Nikola Tesla at the age of 63, this autobiography is a fascinating glimpse into the interior life of a man who may have contributed more to the fields of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead, a man certainly possessed of genius, and one who some consider the most important man of the 20th century.
Written in his early 60s, Tesla looks back on the events that shaped his life as the inventor of our modern world. Like many exceptional artists, scientists, and engineers, Tesla's senses and intellect worked on a higher level, which often afflicted him physically. Yet, he overcame, and used his special abilities and strong educational background to make electricity the servant of man.
In The Most Interesting Man in the World, Gray Barker carefully explains several of Nikola Tesla’s inventions in language the average listener can understand. He also includes articles by Tesla experts Tom Bearden, William R. Lyne, and Fred Bobb, as well as several chapters written by Tesla himself which presage the advent of radio, television, the Internet, satellites, cellphones, and lasers, proving just how far ahead of everyone else Tesla really was.
My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla is a book compiled and edited by Ben Johnston detailing the work of Nikola Tesla. The content was largely drawn from a series of articles that Nikola Tesla had written for Electrical Experimenter magazine in 1919 when he was 63 years old. This particular audiobook has been masterfully crafted to provide the best possible listening experience, from the narration down to the details of audio editing.
Inventor and scientist Nikola Tesla believed in life on other planets. One night in his laboratory in the Colorado mountains, he began noting electronic signals that he deduced came from an intelligent life form on another planet. While over 100 years later we have still failed to prove the existence of alien life, Tesla’s short article provides a fascinating look at the possibility of interplanetary communication. To the visionary who invented wireless communication, sending a message to Mars was merely the logical next step.
Where does human energy come from, and where is it going? In this fascinating text, notable inventor Nikola Tesla examines these fundamental questions as he theorizes ways of maximizing human energy. While he thinks like a scientist, Tesla writes like a philosopher, making the text accessible for a wider audience. The Problem of Increasing Human Energy functions as both a valuable contribution to scientific thought and a self-help book for humanity.
Nikola Tesla (1856 -1943) was a Serbian American inventor, engineer, and physicist. In his work Talking with Planets, the prodigious inventor describes receiving radio waves from nonterrestrial sources.
Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943) was a genius who revolutionized the way the world looks at electricity. In February 1915, Tesla published a short 12-page work titled How Cosmic Forces Shape Our Destinies in the New York American magazine, recreated as an audiobook here. As Tesla explains in this work, "everything that exists, organic or inorganic, animated or inert, is susceptible to stimulus from the outside. There is no gap between, no break of continuity, no special and distinguishing vital agent. The same law governs all matter, all the universe is alive."
To those who believed that all the great electric discoveries had already been made, Tesla says, “What has been so far done by electricity is nothing as compared with what the future has in store.” In this fascinating article, he discusses the possibilities yet to be enacted using electricity. He successfully predicted current inventions, including common smartphone technologies of sending photos and using voice-to-text tools. Others are yet to be accomplished to his full vision....
Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, physicist, mechanical engineer, electrical engineer, and futurist. He is best known for his contributions to the modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system, the successful system in the "War of Currents" and the Tesla coil. Nikolas Tesla's patents and theoretical work helped form the basis of wireless communication and radio.
