My Inventions and Other Writings
'When you think of unbounded leaps of human imagination you should think of Tesla. His fantastical penetrating spirit will unloosen your inner yes. But please don't read this book if you wish to remain normal.' Kevin Kelly, author of What Technology Wants and editor-at-large, WiredFamous for his pioneering contributions to the electronic age, his lifelong feud with Thomas Edison, and his erratic behavior, Nikola Tesla was one of the most brilliant and daring inventors and visionaries of his time. Originally written in 1919 as a series of articles in Electrical Experimenter magazine, My Inventions is Tesla's autobiography, with meditations on his major discoveries and innovations, including the rotating magnetic field, the magnifying transmitter, and the Tesla coil. This volume also includes three articles by Tesla, as well as an enlightening introduction that discredits many of the myths surrounding the thinker's eccentric life.
