Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft. Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla's private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an "idealist" inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion. This major biography sheds new light on Tesla's visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.

Two myths exist on the late Tesla. Interestingly, one of the myths asserts that Tesla greatest enemy was Thomas Edison. The second mystery of Nikola Tesla is more amazing. The current world talks of his great abilities. A search on the web would provide articles describing Tesla lost inventions, famous discoveries, and a visionary leader. However, during his days, no one acknowledged his unique abilities. Patent disputes occurring between Westinghouse and General Electric have undermined Tesla discovery of present day alternating current. General Electric hired a man to author a book on the Theory and Calculation of Alternating Current Phenomena. Despite thousands of people not reading about the name Tesla, it did not stop his fame. Today people know of his great innovations. Smith Rolf terms the period of starting 1893 as Tesla’s decade.

The Inventions, Researches and Writings of Nikola Tesla is a book compiled by Thomas Commerford Martin detailing the work of Nikola Tesla through 1893. The book is a comprehensive compilation of Tesla's pioneering activities, research, and works. The book contains 43 chapters, most of them on different areas of Tesla's research and inventions by Tesla. The ideas and inventions are conveyed in their own way, determining by their own place by intrinsic merit. But with the fact that Tesla blazed a path that electrical development would later follow for years to come, the compiler of the book endeavored to bring together all of Tesla's work up to that point in Tesla's life. Aside from indicating the range of his thought and originality of his mind, the book has historical value because it describes the scope of Tesla's early inventions. Tesla is recognized as one of the foremost electrical researchers and inventors and, at the time of publication, the book was the "bible" of every electrical engineer practicing the profession.
