The Truth About Tesla: The Myth of the Lone Genius in the History of Innovation

Average: 4.1 (13 votes)
Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest electrical inventors who ever lived. For years, the engineering genius was relegated to relative obscurity, his contributions to humanity (we are told) obscured by a number of nineteenth-century inventors and industrialists who took credit for his work or stole his patents outright. In recent years, the historical record has been "corrected" and Tesla has been restored to his rightful place among historical luminaries like Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and Gugliemo Marconi.

Tesla's Signal

Average: 3 (6 votes)
The Serbian-American scientist Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is the developer of the alternating current electrical system which the world has used for over 100 years. Thus, he can rightly be called “the father of the industrial age.” And yet until recently, his name was virtually invisible.

While the first few chapters are loosely based on real events in Tesla's life, my portrayal of Tesla's thoughts, character and unusual... continue reading »

Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the... continue reading »

The book “The Unresolved Patents of Nikola Tesla” is a logical successor to the work “ The Patents of Nikola Tesla - Towards the Definite Catalog ” by Snezana Sarboh M.Sc, published in 2006 by the Nikola Tesla Museum as two separate editions in Serbian and English. The publication's subtitle - Towards the Definite Catalog - clearly suggests the need for additional research of patent documentation, which would provide further insight into the lifetime's work of this ingenious scientist, engineer and inventor. This new edition is a result of comprehensive expert research carried out by patent... continue reading »
