My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla
About this deal
Just like planting seeds, hands that work for the future expect not to reap the fruits of their labor. When they discovered that Tesla’s invention might not only transmit signals, sound, and images, but also electricity, did they not like the fact that it would render worthless the existing electrical infrastructure? Can anyone believe that so hopeless a physical wreck could ever be transformed into a man of astonishing strength and tenacity, able to work thirty-eight years almost without a day’s interruption, and find himself strong and fresh in body and mind? Lacking a technical background, I didn’t think the book would capture my interest; but I was hooked from the very first page. Written during the Prohibition (1920-1933), Tesla foresaw a time when entire cities would be destroyed in an instant, and our only hope for peace was a global communication and transport system.
Although Tesla prided himself on his very organized mind, and way of thinking, his writings do not reflect that, and seem to bounce all over the place, with unfinished thoughts and gaps in logic throughout.Il sole stava tramontando, le trote erano allegre e di tanto in tanto saltavano fuori dall’acqua, con la loro sagoma scintillante che si stagliava perfettamente contro una parete di roccia lì vicino.
His upbringing, philosophies, inventions, and electrical experiments are all here in this short collection. Upon solving the problem of increased energy consumption, countries would have fewer reasons to fight wars, and we would find alternative solutions to never-ending conflicts.Un alt vis de-al lui era tehnologia wireless, la care se gândea încă de pe atunci, la începutul secolului XX, și prin care aspira la o comunicare facilă și instantanee între oameni, fără restricții.
The book also gives some insight into what it's like to be a genius, and some of the abilities such a person possesses. He tells a lot of stories of his childhood, which were a very interesting glimpse into a great mind.After reading his thoughts in his own words, I feel that, in some way, I know him now and certainly love him all the more for every page. In 1882 Tesla went to work in Paris for the Continental Edison Company, and, while on assignment to Strassburg in 1883, he constructed, after work hours, his first induction motor. When AC came along, cities could have one generator that supplies the multitudes of houses (like we have now in our society).

I was heartbroken when I read he died alone in a hotel room in poverty due to crooks like Edison and Westinghouse. poate ar fi fost și mai multe dacă laboratorul lui n-ar fi ars în 1895, pierzându-se documente și note foarte importante. This man, who was a genius polymath, inventor, a mechanical and electrical engineer, had a global insight into the transmission of energy.This rare window into the industrial age's most tragic genius will fascinate historians, scientists, aspiring inventors, and curious fans alike. Sobald er sich wieder in seinen Berichten über Maschinen ergibt, gab ich mir zwar Mühe, aber das war dann doch zu viel für mich. Mama sa l-a numit “copilul luminii”, datorită faptului că s-a născut în timpul unei furtuni cu descărcări electrice. Understanding Tesla is much deeper than learning the physics or math behind electricity; it is more about recognizing the beauty of how energy manifests itself in the universe, and how to successfully model and harness it. That is why I will have to read it in future years as my professional understanding of Electricity and energy evolves.
