    About Nikola Tesla


    1. Nikola Tesla was a genius polymath, inventor and a mechanical and electrical engineer He is frequently cited as one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity, a man who shed light over the face of Earth, and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electricity and magnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries Tesla s patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current AC electric power systems, including the polyphase power distribution systems and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.Born an ethnic Serb in the village of Smiljan, Vojna Krajina, in the territory of today s Croatia, he was a subject of the Austrian Empire by birth and later became an American citizen After his demonstration of wireless communication radio in 1894 and after being the victor in the War of Currents , he was widely respected as one of the greatest electrical engineers who worked in America Much of his early work pioneered modern electrical engineering and many of his discoveries were of groundbreaking importance During this period, in the United States, Tesla s fame rivaled that of any other inventor or scientist in history or popular culture, but due to his eccentric personality and his seemingly unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments, Tesla was ultimately ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist Never having put much focus on his finances, Tesla died impoverished at the age of 86.The SI unit measuring magnetic flux density or magnetic induction commonly known as the magnetic field B , the tesla, was named in his honor at the Conf rence G n rale des Poids et Mesures, Paris, 1960 , as well as the Tesla effect of wireless energy transfer to wirelessly power electronic devices which Tesla demonstrated on a low scale lightbulbs as early as 1893 and aspired to use for the intercontinental transmission of industrial energy levels in his unfinished Wardenclyffe Tower project.Aside from his work on electromagnetism and electromechanical engineering, Tesla contributed in varying degrees to the establishment of robotics, remote control, radar and computer science, and to the expansion of ballistics, nuclear physics, and theoretical physics In 1943, the Supreme Court of the United States credited him as being the inventor of the radio Many of his achievements have been used, with some controversy, to support various pseudosciences, UFO theories, and early New Age occultism.

    1. Great book about one of the greatest inventors of all time. Sadly this book is "too" small and he just gives us a very brief glimpse of his inventions and ideas. I did not know many things about him before reading this book like: Tesla was involved in wireless research, Marconi actually stole the Radio idea from Tesla. I always related Tesla with alternating current and did not know that he was into wireless as well.I also liked that his main intention for inventing something was not to get appl [...]

    2. What a bizarre little book. Tesla has always seemed to me someone who existed in a space between our world and another unfathomable place, brought here by a glitch in dimensions or something. This loose memoir confirms my suspicions :). And not only because of passages like this: "I had a brother who was gifted to an extraordinary degree; one of those rare phenomena of mentality which biological investigation has failed to explain. His premature death left my earth parents disconsolate." No, it' [...]

    5. Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a genius inventor, engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for designing of AC electricity supply system. He first caught my attention (of course as an engineer I had studied about the IS unit of the strength of a magnetic field named after him) in Nolan’s movie “the prestige” in which he was pictured as a kind of magician who could easily duplicate a cat or magically light wireless lamps. I wanted to know more about him and now reading his autobiography I [...]

    6. Tesla'nın kendi dilinden epey teknik de olsa icatlarını dinlemek güzel. Hayatı boyunca çektiği sıkıntıları ve hastalıkları odaklanmaya çevirebilmiş olması muazzam. Yalnız çeviride bir şeyler eksik gibi ama bunun sebebi biraz teknik bir eser olması olabilir.

    7. This has been very, very interesting. A book written by an undisputed genius in his very own words.I must say this book was a surprise. I was expecting lots of technical detail, but instead the book was filled with lots of interesting stories and insightful social comment. Some of the stories were even hilarious, causing me to laugh out loud a number of times.The book also gives some insight into what it's like to be a genius, and some of the abilities such a person possesses. For instance, draw [...]

    8. Read this on Graham's recommendation, and it was *fascinating* to hear it from the man himself. Tesla was famous for inventing alternating current (AC), which is used in every house and electric motor today. He was a famous scientist of his time, and supposedly there was some rift with him and Edison. It appears actually that Tesla sold his patents and the company that bought them sued everyone else, causing his name to be associated with the suits, even though he wasn't really involved. Tesla i [...]

    11. Tesla zamanının ötesinde bir insan. Bizim zamanımızın bile ötesinde bana kalırsa. 100 yıl önceki öngörülerinin anlaşılamaması da şaşırtıcı değil aslında. Herkesçe malum dehası dışında benim açımdan Tesla'yı özel kılan; hayata bakışı, olayları değerlendirme tarzı ve doğası itibariyle muhteşem bir insan oluşu.Bu kitap da Tesla'nın icatları dışında yetiştiği ortam ve yaşam felsefesi hakkında da kendi kaleminden önemli anektodlar içermesi bakım [...]

Amiyane tabirle, adam ne çalışmış İşte buluşlarıdır, hayatıdır, zekasıdır, ilginç tavırları ve psikolojisidir, bunlar ile ilgili detaylar için başka kitaplara, ki ben de öyle yapacağım ama açıkçası bu kadar çalıştığını pek duymamıştım Tesla'nın. Diğer hususlar biraz klasik. Gerçekten günümüze o zamandan ışık tuttuğunu gö [...]

    14. I decided to flip through the pages of My Inventions after my dad enthusiastically described how engineers at McMaster university, following Tesla’s principles, had powered a fan using electricity that was transmitted wirelessly from one mini tower to another.Lacking a technical background, I didn’t think the book would capture my interest; but I was hooked from the very first page. Not only does Tesla share some unique observations of the world and his mind, such as his self-preserving devi [...]

    15. Nikola Tesla is a pure genius and his intelligence far surpasses that of Einstein. He traveled to America to make the world a better place, but America always makes sure to grind down anyone that cares for the betterment of humanity. He wanted to make free wireless electricity for the whole world, designed a laser powerful enough to destroy anything (he destroyed his design because he didn't believe humans could use it wisely), he game up with a lot of war patents that belong to the US today, ca [...]

    17. Tesla için, zamanında değeri bilinmemiş bir dahi lafını duyarız, gerçekten de öyleymiş.Yaptığı her şeyi bilinçli bir şekilde, düşünerek, çokça düşünerek, sürekli hayal ederek yapmış. Bir anda Tesla oluvermemiş, küçüklüğünden itibaren yaptıklarıyla bu adı kazanmış.

    18. I didn't think it was possible for me to love Tesla more than I already had. 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. My favorite part of the book was Tesla's ranting about the wireless. Its potential was so clear to him. Freeing ourselves from wires, and harnessing the waves in the air around us, would not only lead to advances in technology that were at that time unimaginable, but for Tesla, wirele [...]

    19. Tesla'nın sıradışı zekasını kendi kaleminden okumak çok güzeldi. Kitap bir çırpıda bitti. Çok ilginç bir kişilik, çok ilginç bir karakter. Kurgu olsa abartı olmuş derdim, böyle bir çalışkanlığa hiç denk gelmedim ama Tesla'nın yüzlerce buluşu düşünülünce insanın aklına yatıyor. Yaratıcılığına, zekasına, ileri görüşlülüğüne bir kez daha hayaran kaldım.

    21. Nikola Tesla was a peculiar human being, an inventor, an engineer, a mad scientist, and most of all a visionary. The early 20th century was not ready for his genius. His biggest inventions (The Tesla Transformer, The Magnifying Transmitter, The Terrestrial Stationary Waves, The Tesla Wireless System) were the basis of many huge phenomena we're familiar with like the Internet, AC current, Wi-Fi and GPS. He knew his works were way ahead of his time yet he kept working hard to pursue his visions to [...]

    22. A few great essays and a quick read. The stories from his youth were laugh-out-loud funny. His relationships with his mother and father are touching and enlightening, and the first part of the book describes very charmingly and accessibly how to create a thoughtful, strong, productive character. The introduction by Ben Johnston very helpfully dispels some of the common mythology about Tesla with very specific information about how it was created. "The pressure of occupation and the incessant str [...]

    23. UmmI think I'm in LOVE with a dead guy! Seriously, Nikola Tesla is a pure genius and his intelligence far surpasses that of Einstein. I wish he would have written a book earlier on and since this was written in his late sixties and is very short, readers are left wanting more. Among many other astounding inventions, including building an AC motor, he came up with the concept of wireless communication in the 1890's!!! I was heartbroken when I read he died alone in a hotel room in poverty due to c [...]

    26. MY INVENTIONS: The Autobiography of Nicola Tesla. (1919; this ed. 1982). Nicola Tesla. ***. Of the various accomplishments that Tesla could brag about, writing would certainly not be one of them. This “autobiography” is a collation of six articles that Tesla wrote for the magazine, “Electrical Experimenter” in 1919. He traces his life from his early days in Croatia, where he was born and raised, to his achievements in the world of electrical inventions. The things that he reveals in the [...]

    27. I read this book three times. Although its a bit disorganized and despite the fact that it is a very brief autobiography, it remains to be one of the best autobiographies I have read. I don't think anyone who reads Tesla's autobiography wouldn't be fascinated by him. His character, his genius, and most of all, his hard work that lead to many of the advancements we see today. Tesla was one of the visionaries of the 19th and 20th century, yet so many people never heard about him. The 'book' is ver [...]

    29. - the book is based on 5 articles Tesla published in a technical journal (Electrical Experimenter)- 1856-1943, born in Croatia, in a Serbian family. His father was an orthodox priest with a military education, he was also a man of vast reading and a spirited writer. His mother was a highly energetic woman and kept together the household (she used to plant seeds, grow the plants and turn them to fabric and clothes and had built the furniture in the house) and she used to invent tools to make her [...]

    30. I've waited forever for a biography of Nikola Tesla in Finnish! I'm so glad Oppian published this, since Tesla surely had an interesting life. The translator notes that he has tried to keep Tesla's style, even though the guy couldn't really write. The text is extremely sporadic and somehow makes me think he was autistic on some level and I'm not the only one who thinks like this. Now we surely need a biography by an actual writer to counterpart this! What made we slightly angry though is that th [...]
