Nikola Tesla, a Serbian immigrant, invented the radio, the induction motor, the neon lamp, and the remote control. Tesla's personal life was magnificently bizarre. Strikingly handsome and impeccably dressed, he was germophobic and never shook hands. He required nine napkins when he sat down to dinner. In later years, he ate only white food and conversed with the pigeons in Bryant Park. This clear, authoritative, and highly enjoyable biography takes account of all phases of this remarkable life.

There was no struggle to finish this book. The information was connective and relative to all those involved with the electric and technological convieneces in which we enjoy today. I would have not have picked this novel as a topic of interest, with no regrets, I'm glad that I was influenced to do so. A novel that influences feelings of thankfulness that an inventor, intellectual, and dedicated scientist never ceased to further our lives by creating technological advances.
