This book describes the inventions and the writings of Nikola Tesla in old timey language. Not all of it was written by Tesla, since a few of the patents and descriptions are from a first hand source. Since the descriptions of things are so old, it is somewhat difficult to know what he's talking about at times, but it works out. Only the names for things have changed, but the underlying physics hasn't so you can tell what some things are. Then there are descriptions that needed to be looked up, like with ebonite and some types of apparatus that he uses.

All in all, the book was enjoyable, but it was slightly hard to understand sometimes. ( )
