Publisher's Summary

Nikola Tesla was a person who made great contributions in the field of electricity. He helped design the electricity supply system of alternating current. He also worked with other great individuals, including Thomas Edison, even though that was only for a short time. With his development of various electrical devices, he was able to contribute to the electrical evolution that has truly transformed the lives of so many people. Although he was penniless when he migrated in New York, it did not hinder him from creating his amazing inventions.

Aside from his contributions to alternating current, he also helped in the development of the radio, as well as wireless communication. He experienced struggles in his life, yet he worked hard to accomplish what he wanted to do in pursuit of the dreams and visions that he had, which included a world that uses wireless power. He was a man ahead of his time. Thus, he did not expect the world to accept the advanced ideas that he had, nor did he expect to receive fast results in what he was doing.

The accomplishments of Tesla during his entire lifetime are considered legendary. They include the Tesla coil, induction motor, Tesla turbines, Tesla insulation, and the Tesla compressor. He also had a photographic memory, and he could solve problems in his head. Due to this, he was accused of cheating, although that was not really what happened. He had a plausible ability for visualization. That was probably why he was capable of visualizing his inventions, no matter how complex it was in his mind. What was amazing about it was that he could visualize it with great precision.

Many people might not have known that he had a rare condition called synesthesia. Synesthesia is a perceptual condition where an individual experiences mixed sensations. Although this was the case, he was able to put his condition to good use; he used it as an aid in designing the details of his inventions.

    "Enjoyable Story of Quintessential Mad Scientist"

    Easy listening & enjoyable story of the Quintessential Mad Scientist, Nikola Tesla. Many modern day technological advances have been made possible by Tesla's ground work. Tesla would have enjoyed this narrative. I hope one day Wardencliffe becomes a Tesla Museum. as a child I had an uncle who worked in Tesla's Niagara Falls Power Station. I believe there is a statue of Tesla on site. I am an electrical Engineer & my dream is to own a Tesla Motorcar! He:d be so proud to see a Tesla whizz past quietly! XIII.
