Not an easy listen

It was difficult to endure the repeated mispronounciations and overworked elocution. Both archaic and technical terms were mispronounced or simply replaced with common terms, to the detriment of the listening experience.

Tesla was an extremely interesting person.

I did know some about Tesla before listening to this but he was a much more interesting man than I think most of us realize. The narration really made me feel like it was Tesla actually talking. Highly recommended.

Tesla is a fascinating person

Nikola Tesla is a far more interesting, quirky character than I had previously realized. In this autobiography, he talks about his mental and physical health as well as family relationships. The reading of this particular book was superb and served to further improve the story.

Really interesting read

It's so interesting to dive into the mind of this great inventor. The narration is spot on (except in other languages than English). It's short and sweet. I recommend this.

captivating

first Autobiography I've read and I really recommend it, very interesting. the narration is perfect. if I had to gripe, Tesla is hard to follow in some parts, but I'd put that more on me than the book
