Publisher's Summary

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. He personally invented radio, AC electricity, remote-control, and initiated a plan for the first wireless network. He believed in using renewable energy, and developed the first hydroelectric power plants. And always, his altruistic goal was to make a better world for mankind.

    "Very interesting"

    Interesting book, and a great insight into the Genius. However the narrator is rather irritating at times when he tries to act out some of the lines with an almost soap opera style of expression.

    "Interesting Listen"
    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.

    Story
    "not alot of meat"
    Would you try another book from Nikola Tesla and/or David Mitchell?

    yes, as I am interested in the subject the narration was good


    What was most disappointing about Nikola Tesla’s story?

    I was looking for more nuts and bolts. Having heard the Wizard the life and times of Nicola Tesla, which was packed with information, I found this book to be lacking


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Some of his childhood stories


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was nice to hear his stories in his own words

    "Not a professional performance"

    Interesting book but was difficult to listen to at times. The reader was often too dramatic and read lines in a manner which leaves the listener annoyed. The worst part of this audio book was the incessant lip-smacking-wet-saliva noises which, with eyes closed, tricked me into believing that I was trapped in a damp basement wearing squishy socks and soggy boots.

    Story
    "I Liked this, it showed how unique Tesla was..."

    this is a great listen it is easy to believe you are listening to his voice.

    some of it was over my head...
    but I loved how he talked about the Unique way is mind worked ..
    and his personal history.
    I think he wanted to give us the web way back then...
    I wish he had talked more about the challenges of Capitalism's deathgrip over his Ideas.

    very enjoyable... I will listen to it again.

    "found this interesting but lacking greatly"

    this is an interesting autobiography on nikola tesla however its lacking greatly on the specifics of his life. its like listening to a quick summary of his entire life rather than a true autobiography.

    "Blowhard"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Somebody who need to be put to sleep.


    What could Nikola Tesla have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have somone other than Telsa write the book.


    What didn’t you like about David Mitchell’s performance?

    Too affected


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Telsa was great, but this book was boring.


    Any additional comments?

    This was one of the worst books I listened to from audible, of the more than 100 I have purchased. Poorly written and performed. A biography of Tesla rather than an autobiography would have been better.

    "Really bad performance. Puts you to sleep"

    Could not judge the story itself as the performance was a real sleeper. It appears that the Mr. Mitchell was transported through a time-machine from Tesla's own time. A real sleeper.
