Publisher's Summary

Written in his early 60s, Tesla looks back on the events that shaped his life as the inventor of our modern world. Like many exceptional artists, scientists, and engineers, Tesla's senses and intellect worked on a higher level, which often afflicted him physically. Yet he overcame, and used his special abilities and strong educational background to make electricity the servant of man. He personally invented radio, AC electricity, remote-control, and initiated a plan for the first wireless network. He believed in using renewable energy, and developed the first hydroelectric power plants. And always, his altruistic goal was to make a better world for mankind.

Very interesting

Interesting book, and a great insight into the Genius. However the narrator is rather irritating at times when he tries to act out some of the lines with an almost soap opera style of expression.

Interesting Listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Once you get over how self impressed he was writing this it becomes fairly entertaining to hear Tesla describe his own virtues. An interesting book. I was a little disappointed that this didn't cover all of his life, but being written at a time when many of his plans and ideas were still being implemented it's interesting to know now what he actually did and did not accomplish.
