Carlson brings to life Tesla's extravagant self-promotion, as well as his eccentricity and innate talents, revealing him as a celebrity-inventor of the 'second industrial revolution' to rival Thomas Alva Edison. Patrick McCray, Nature "Soundly footnoted, yet eminently readable, it provides a balanced examination of the man and his work, focusing particularly on Tesla's distinctive style of invention.
Clearly surpassing earlier accounts, [this] will be the gold standard for Tesla biography. Misa, Science "A scholarly, critical, mostly illuminating study of the life and work of the great Serbian inventor. Carlson provides not only a more detailed explanation of Tesla's science but also a more focused psychological account of Tesla's inventive process than do his predecessors.
Carlson also surpasses his predecessors in showing how Tesla promoted his inventions by creating luminous illusions of progress, prosperity, and peace, illusions so strong that they finally unhinge their creator. An exceptional fusion of technical analysis of revolutionary devices and imaginative sympathy for a lacerated ego.
Carlson relates the science behind Tesla's inventions with a judicial balance that will engage both the novice and the academic alike. Highly recommended to serious biography buffs and to readers of scientific subjects. He resists the temptation to focus only on Tesla's persona as an eccentric genius with a flair for drama. Instead, Carlson sets out to answer three questions: 'How did Tesla invent?
How did his inventions work? And what happened as he introduced his inventions? He explores and details all his major inventions, providing illustrations and in some cases even reproductions of the patent applications.
This is as fair and balanced a biography of Tesla as one could hope for, no mean feat for a man so full of contradictions.No doubt, this will be a growing field in the years to come.
