Publisher's Summary

Written by Nikola Tesla at the age of 63, this autobiography is a fascinating glimpse into the interior life of a man who may have contributed more to the fields of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead, a man certainly possessed of genius, and one who some consider the most important man of the 20th century.

My Inventions is a firsthand account not only of the art and science behind the conception, execution, and reception of Tesla's most famous inventions but of his early life and first creative efforts as well. History buffs, science enthusiasts, backyard inventors, and anyone who has ever dared to dream big will be thrilled to hear this engaging, informative, and uniquely humorous autobiography.

Not worth the time.

This supposed autobiography sounded very disjointed. Then I learnt that this was later "stitched together into an autobiography" from a series of articles that Tesla wrote for magazines. That explains the lack of cohesiveness. I came to this via the Audible Plus Catalog. Anyone who listens to this will agree with me that the narrator is another major irritant in this already disappointing audiobook.

What a great find

What a heartfelt self-examination of a complex and gifted soul. Admittedly my understanding of physics has passed its prime otherwise I would have devoured it.

Purchased for school project

We listened to this book in the car on the way to school for my sons class project. It was a decent read. He enjoyed it and was able to get great info and facts for his report.
