    Nikola Tesla deserves more recognition, and this book provides that. Tesla is the genius for whom the all-electric car is named, but more importantly he in the early twentieth century invented the electric motor, and he outlined cell phones and lasers. Yet he was also a fascinating cha...

    4.5 Nikola Tesla has become a Culture Icon known more for his reputation as a kind of magician and rogue inventor, thanks to the movie The Prestige, and as a visionary, his name recognized because of Tesla Motors. And yet few of us understand that everything we take for granted toda...

    Great biography of an extraordinary inventor. This book explains Tesla's achievements but also describes his upbringing and relationships. Well researched and written. ...

    Fascinating character. Engaging biography. Well written Insightful stories. ...

    What a treat! Finally a readable, enjoyable, and insightful book about Nikola Tesla, the great inventor who usually doesn't obtain the respect he deserves. Munson offers a fast-paced and fluid portrait of the remarkable scientist, but he also explains Tesla's history and highlights his...

    The best biography of Tesla I've read, second only to Tesla's autobiography. ...

    At last a book that does Nikola Tesla justice. Munson doesn't suggest Tesla was a superman, even if his inventions were super; he also doesn't focus on the scientist's quirks, even though they impact his life. Munson offers a very well written and fair and insightful biography that rev...

    Tesla? More people know about the car than the man. Richard Munson does a great job correcting this mistake since the man's life is fascinating and his inventions -- including electric motors and robots -- underpin our economy. "Tesla: Inventor of the Modern" is an easy read, although ...

    You hear so much about Tesla. Without a doubt he is one of the most fascinating characters of the late 19th and early 20th century, but at this point it can be hard to separate the myth from the reality. This new book by Dick Munson not only discusses Tesla?s accomplishments also exp...
