    Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology.

    Jean says: "Tesla was a hundred years ahead of his time"
    "Why venture into Balkan history?"

    Any additional comments?

    Almost at the very beginning the author attempts to tell the history of the Balkans and all involved nations - and makes a horrible job at it. The history narrated is largely in-factual and told from a very strict Serb point of view - the same narrative used when they launched aggressive wars in early 90s.While Tesla's background as a Serb born in rural Croatia may be interesting to mention in the context of his childhood, the centuries before he was born are not relevant to tell the story of this great man.
