9780747262657: The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century: Nikola Tesla - Forgotten Genius of Electricity

The story of the twentieth century's greatest unsung scientific hero, Nikola Tesla, the uncredited inventor of electric light, radio and hydro-electric power. His life was perhaps as intriguing for its extraordinary commercial disasters and painful obscurity as for the remarkable discoveries he made.

The Kindle addition has a new extended plate section, which would have been too big to fit in the paper version.

Review:

Engineering and Technology Magazine said:

"This book is fun, which is not something one often says about engineering books...Tesla is most widely known for the magnetic unit that bears his name, but sadly little else. This book is a thoroughly entertaining way of correcting that injustice, a must for engineers, especially electrical ones."

Angus Clarke, Times Metro Magazine:

"Nikola Tesla... laid the groundwork for many things we take for granted today including alternating current, radio, fax and e-mail. ...Tesla combined genius with gaping character flaws and an uncanny ability to be ripped off by everyone. This is scientific popularisation at its most readable."
