Prodigal Genius – Life Of Nikola Tesla


This highly detailed work captures Tesla as a scientist and as a public figure. The first, original full-length biography, first published in 1944 and long a favorite of Tesla fans, is a definitive biography of the man without whom modern civilization would not exist. His inventions on rotating magnetic fields creating AC current as we know it today, have changed the world—yet he is relatively unknown. This special edition of O’Neill’s classic book has many rare photographs of Tesla and his most advanced inventions. Tesla’s eccentric personality gives his life story a strange romantic quality. He made his first million before he was forty, yet gave up his royalties in a gesture of friendship, and died almost in poverty.
