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.
"Tesla was a hundred years ahead of his time"
On an average September day, Stephen's world was shattered when a Rhode Island state trooper arrested him for the murder of a drug dealer named Joe Viscido, Jr., in Florida four years earlier. Though Stephen could prove that he was 1,500 miles away at the time of the murder, Peter Dallas admitted to the crime and named Stephen as his accomplice. Like something out of Kafka, Stephen found himself imprisoned for a non-bailable offense and was whisked away to a Rhode Island jail.
