NIKOLA TESLA was a gifted electrical and mechanical engineer, and was one of the most influential inventors of the last century. Eventually holding over 700 patents, Tesla worked in a number of fields, including electricity, robotics, radar, and the wireless transmission of energy. His discoveries laid the groundwork for many of the twentieth century’s greatest technological advances.
This book contains Tesla’s philosophical ideas on humanity’s relationship with the universe, and also his explanation of technological aspects of his work. His ideas on the wireless transmission of energy are discussed.
First published in Century Illustrated Magazine in June 1900, this text is yet another example of his genius.

We still don’t understand gravity but this is a book worth reading. We have the same problems today as we did in the early 1900’s.
Here and there
While some of the information and ideas put forth by Tesla in this book were good, a lot of it felt like it kept repeating itself. There are only so many ways you can say iron is useful but will be replaced. As well as the fact that coal is burned near the mine and turned into electricity then transported away. I couldn’t bring myself to finish the rest of the book.
