Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age
Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America’s first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft.
Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla’s private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an “idealist” inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion.
This major biography sheds new light on Tesla’s visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.
Nikola Tesla was a brilliant scientist whose discoveries and inventions in the field of alternating current electricity advanced the United States and the rest of the world into the modern industrial era. Many of the new technologies in the world today are based on Tesla’s ideas. Tesla’s discoveries and inventions include the Tesla coil, fluorescent light, wireless transmission of electrical energy, radio, remote control, alternating current, the induction motor, rotating magnetic field, cosmic radio waves and the use of the ionosphere for scientific purposes. He has been called “The genius who lit the world”.

If you can read your way past the flowery, unnecessarily complex 1930’s language, you actually might come away with a good understanding of what Mr. Tesla was attempting to tell his New York audience. It’s all very interesting and almost too good to be true, if it wasn’t already recorded in the history book, about 50 years before anyone listening to him would be able to understand what he was saying. Tesla was part of a group visionaries who looked into this world through a a different looking glass. An eccentric genius who asked questions, and found answers to many of them. His life was in many ways inspired by his times. In this work he explains his works on AC to an esteemed group of men. All the while showing deference to their station.
