Tuttavia mi impegnai in un’impresa ancora più difficile e anticipai a mio zio, nei più piccoli dettagli, ciò che avevo intenzione di fare.

Our food consumption would differ, directly affecting our intelligence, mentality, and spirituality. However, Tesla was employed as the dynamo designer for the Edison Machine Works while he obtained more than 100 patents and designed 700 inventions. And not only because of passages like this: "I had a brother who was gifted to an extraordinary degree; one of those rare phenomena of mentality which biological investigation has failed to explain. When AC came along, cities could have one generator that supplies the multitudes of houses (like we have now in our society). At times (the obsolescence of copper in a world which has mastered aluminium), he's flat-out wrong, and he's one of the long line of techno-utopians who thought new inventions would bring world peace - yet you can't help wondering if, with Tesla at the helm, they might have done.

I think it's a collector's item to be used more as a reference work than a book to be read from cover to cover. Written by Nikola Tesla at the age of sixty-three, this autobiography is a fascinating glimpse into the interior life of a man who may have contributed more to the fields of electricity, radio, and television than any other person living or dead, a man certainly possessed of genius and one who some consider the most important man of the twentieth century. Just like planting seeds, hands that work for the future expect not to reap the fruits of their labor. I wish he would have written a book earlier on and since this was written in his late sixties and is very short, readers are left wanting more. He also lit 200 lamps without wires from a distance of 40 km (25 miles) and created man-made lightning, producing flashes measuring 41 metres (135 feet).

Reading the words of a legendary man, shrouded in pop-culture mystery, has had the beautiful effect of brining him down to Earth. This rare window into the industrial age's most tragic genius will fascinate historians, scientists, aspiring inventors, and curious fans alike. The concluding essay here, 'The Problem of Increasing Human Energy', is at once a massively ahead-of-its-time plea for renewable energy, and a bonkers tract of mechanical mysticism which wouldn't be out of place as a tract for the insane cult of Gordelpus in Stapledon's Last and First Men. Some parts of the book read as 'familiar' because of how precise Tesla saw into our time and beyond.

He never used blueprints or models to project his ideas, instead preferring to perfect his inventions in his mind until he turned them into reality, which is, in itself, an astonishing feat. The book ‘My Inventions and Other Writings’ is an autobiography of Nikola Tesla formed from a collection of his essays and articles throughout his illustrious career, most notably in the scientific magazine ‘Electrical Experimenter’, shedding light on the actual reality of the eccentric inventor and casting aside the mythical decorations. e. if the majority of "scientists" believe in something that makes it true, contrary proof notwithstanding. Ho riscontrato una mancanza di umiltà che mal si addice a un scienziato di rango, soprattutto nell'autocompiacimento con cui egli descrive, senza ostentare alcuna ombra di dubbio, alcune invenzioni che avrebbero, secondo lui, indirizzato il destino dell'umanità tutta. I believe that there is a problem of efficiency with the path we are currently taking, but our situation could definitely be much worse.
