  • Prodigal Genius


The first, original full-length biography, first published in 1944 and long a favorite of Tesla fans, is a definitive biography of the man without whom modern civilization would not exist. His inventions on rotating magnetic fields creating AC current as we know it today, have changed the world - yet he is relatively unknown. This special edition of O'Neill's classic book has many rare photographs of Tesla and his most advanced inventions. Tesla's eccentric personality gives his life story a strange romantic quality.

He made his first million before he was forty, yet gave up his royalties in a gesture of friendship, and died almost in poverty. - Tesla could see an invention in 3-D, from every angle, within his mind, before it was built - how he refused to accept the Nobel Prize - why Tesla clung to his theories of electricity in the face of opposition - his friendships with Mark Twain, George Westinghouse and competition with Thomas Edison.
