Very interesting autobiography. Tesla created the hardware for wireless transmission in 1892 and by 1900, he had designs for GPS, wireless communication, the Internet, drones, and a wireless power system with less than 15% degradation.

He offered the entire package to the US Government with the expectation the government would do the right thing for humanity. Tesla was wrong. The US Gov dismissed Tesla's plans, instead choosing to go with the K Street Man of the Times, lobbyist Alexander Graham Bell. Bell singlehandedly set the United States back a hundred years by advising the US to dismiss Tesla's work.

Tesla's book shows his original ideas came from his youth. Humility aside, Tesla's plans are now the blueprint for the 21st century. He understood the Big Picture. 4 1/2 stars. ( )

Nikola Tesla's autobiography, originally published in a series of magazines, is an amazing and intensely interesting look at one of the greatest geniuses of the modern age. And that's coming from someone who generally hates non-fiction - this is a great read no matter your interests. ( )
