    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Once you get over how self impressed he was writing this it becomes fairly entertaining to hear Tesla describe his own virtues. An interesting book. I was a little disappointed that this didn't cover all of his life, but being written at a time when many of his plans and ideas were still being implemented it's interesting to know now what he actually did and did not accomplish.

    At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother's death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State - and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Story

    Found it to be to wordy and repetitive. Probably could have told the story in 3/4 the length.
