Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest electrical inventors who ever lived. For years, the engineering genius was relegated to relative obscurity, his contributions to humanity (we are told) obscured by a number of nineteenth-century inventors and industrialists who took credit for his work or stole his patents outright. In recent years, the historical record has been "corrected" and Tesla has been restored to his rightful place among historical luminaries like Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and Gugliemo Marconi. Most biographies repeat the familiar account of Tesla's life, including his invention of alternating current, his falling out with Edison, how he lost billions in patent royalties to Westinghouse, and his fight to prove that Marconi stole 13 of his patents to "invent" radio. But, what really happened? Consider this: Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. Newly uncovered information proves that the popular account of Tesla's life is itself very flawed. In The Truth About Tesla, Christopher Cooper sets out to prove that the conventional story not only oversimplifies history, it denies credit to some of the true inventors behind many of the groundbreaking technologies now attributed to Tesla and perpetuates a misunderstanding about the process of innovation itself. Are you positive that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone? Are you sure the Wright Brothers were the first in flight? Think again! With a provocative foreward by Tesla biographer Marc. J. Seifer, The Truth About Tesla is one of the first books to set the record straight, tracing the origin of some of the greatest electrical inventions to a coterie of colorful characters that conventional history has all but forgotten.

The Tesla Motor Company takes its name from the scientist and inventor and the AC motor that it uses in its vehicles is a direct descendant of Tesla’s 1882 design, showing how far reaching and ahead of its time his thinking really was. Nikola Tesla was one of the great innovative geniuses and forward thinkers of the 19th and 20th centuries. He contributed significantly to the development of the alternating current electric supply system and invented (among many other things) the tesla coil, an electrical transformer that is still widely used. His work fell into obscurity until fairly recently when the surge of interest in projects, such as electric cars (and some other more bizarre theories and fads) brought his ideas back to the forefront of technology and popular culture.

The Tesla Conspiracy is a fictional mystery thriller in which three brilliant individuals each work to unravel scientific and historical mysteries relating to probably the most influential and prolific inventor who ever lived: Nikola Tesla. Initially complete strangers, they eventually meet each other, combine their intellectual abilities, and band together as it becomes increasingly obvious that dark forces are determined to stop them at all costs. In 1931, genius inventor Nikola Tesla modified a Pierce Arrow automobile to run on energy extracted from thin air. He test drove it over a week at speeds up to 90 m.p.h. in daytime and nighttime and demonstrated it for the press, but took the secret of how it worked with him to the grave. Electrical engineering graduate student Kathy Olson thinks she can figure out how Tesla's car worked and duplicate his results in modern times. Can existing multi-billion dollar industries afford to allow her to succeed or to reveal the truth to the public? History graduate student Julie Lozano is shocked that American history textbooks fail to mention Nikola Tesla's name and still list Marconi as the radio's inventor, despite the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Tesla was the true inventor. Why is the truth concealed? Weapons designer Benjamin Grazer has developed a frequency interrupter weapon based upon Tesla's discovery that all things vibrate and conflicting vibrations can destroy the object. Will this holy grail of weapons fall into the wrong hands?

“The story of one of the most prolific, independent, and iconoclastic inventors of this century…fascinating.”—Scientific American Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology. Among Tesla’s creations were the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy, and the giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls. This essential biography is illustrated with sixteen pages of photographs, including the July 20, 1931, Time magazine cover for an issue celebrating the inventor’s career. “A deep and comprehensive biography of a great engineer of early electrical science--likely to become the definitive biography. Highly recommended.”--American Association for the Advancement of Science “Seifer's vivid, revelatory, exhaustively researched biography rescues pioneer inventor Nikola Tesla from cult status and restores him to his rightful place as a principal architect of the modern age.” --Publishers Weekly Starred Review “[Wizard] brings the many complex facets of [Tesla's] personal and technical life together in to a cohesive whole....I highly recommend this biography of a great technologist.” --A.A. Mullin, U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command, COMPUTING REVIEWS “[Along with A Beautiful Mind] one of the five best biographies written on the brilliantly disturbed.”--WALL STREET JOURNAL “Wizard is a compelling tale presenting a teeming, vivid world of science, technology, culture and human lives.”-

Biography of Nikola Tesla The extraordinary life of a modern Prometheus Nikola Tesla pursued his ideas for wireless lighting and worldwide wireless electric power distribution in his high-voltage, high-frequency power experiments. Tesla explained the principles of the rotating magnetic field in an induction motor by demonstrating how to make a copper egg stand on end, using a device that he constructed known as the Egg of Columbus and introduced his new steam powered oscillator AC generator. Inside you'll read about A promising intellect Health complications Inventive work A troubled mind Unusual experiences Mental breakdown Controversial viewpoints A forgotten mind From breakdown to brainstorm Overshadowed by rivals Death of a forgotten mind And much more! Based on Tesla's new ideas for electrical equipment, including a thermo-magnetic motor idea, Alfred S. Brown and Charles F. Peck formed the Tesla Electric Company. Nikola Tesla developed an induction motor that ran on alternating current (AC), a power system format that was rapidly expanding in Europe and the United States because of its advantages in long-distance, high-voltage transmission. Biography of Thomas Edison There are a lot more to the story than just the light bulb, and there is a lot more to the invention of the light bulb than just Thomas Edison. One thing is for sure that he is still remembered as one of the greatest inventors of all time, and perhaps the greatest that America has ever produced. In truth, Edison was a man who invented a lot of things while bringing about incredible advancements in many other things. With the stock ticker, the telegraph, the light bulb, and motion picture, he may not have invented them, but he improved on them beyond any recognition. They would not be the technologies they were today without Edison's great mind working on them. Inside you'll read about Born into a country of great change the telegraph and the start of his genius How Edison created the invention machine Edison and the phonograph It wasn't always about success for Edison The truth about the light bulb The rivalry between Tesla and the "war of the currents" Father of the motion pictures The man behind the inventions Edison's greatest quotes His death and the legacy he left behind Remember him for the right reasons And much more! Thomas Edison seems to be remembered these days either the man who invented the light bulb or the man who didn't. Without knowing any more about him, you are either giving him false praise for something he didn't do or not taking into account all the other work he did.
