About this deal

Lacking a technical background, I didn’t think the book would capture my interest; but I was hooked from the very first page. Tesla taught me that Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, two domains that I have had the privilege to pursue, are directly connected to core problems of human existence.

What I mean by that is that in figuring out AC (to replace DC) and in trying to figure out wireless, Tesla overcame the constraints caused by physical wires that are held in place, constrained to one physical area. While reading this book, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking how he would feel about seeing someone reading his own book in an electronic device and then writing a review about it on an intelligent telephone and being able to share with a community through a wireless form of transmission, just like he had envisioned. Can anyone believe that so hopeless a physical wreck could ever be transformed into a man of astonishing strength and tenacity, able to work thirty-eight years almost without a day’s interruption, and find himself strong and fresh in body and mind? He said he controlled most visions but could never control the bright light and fire visions he had.Only through annihilation of distance in every respect, as the conveyance of intelligence, transport of passengers and supplies and transmission of energy will conditions be brought about some day, insuring permanency of friendly relations.

Wenn er in seinem Werk von „einfachen Zusammenhängen“ spricht, wusste ich schon zwei Seiten zuvor nicht mehr, worum es ging. Immer wieder berichtet Tesla von Erfahrungen, die er als Kind oder Jugendlicher gemacht hat, die für seine späteren Arbeiten prägend waren. Tesla's autobiography was first published as a six-part 1919 series in the Electrical Experimenter magazine, in the February – June, and October issues. I wanted to know more about him and now reading his autobiography I find him as a naturally talented genius with a bit of vanity but otherwise brilliant. Later, at Budapest, he visualized the principle of the rotating magnetic field and developed plans for an induction motor that would become his first step toward the successful utilization of alternating current.another partly frictional and partly negative force R, acting in a direction exavtly opposite, and retarding the movement of the mass. At one point he says of coffee and tea "These delicious beverages superexcite and gradually exhaust the fine fibers of the brain.

Notable mentions: electromotive power in units of horses, the beginnings of a beatle powered society thwarted, the coming power of wireless communication to remove all distances between man, the inventor of wireless communication is skeptical of Maxwell and cannot reproduce Hertz's experiments. My Inventions is Tesla's autobiography, with meditations on his major discoveries and innovations, including the rotating magnetic field, the magnifying transmitter, and the Tesla coil. Over a 100 years ago, he accurately predicted the needs that are preponderant in our modern world more than ever. He made a power transmission which was an economic necessity, yet his inventions did not make him a wealthy man.

Kudos to LibriVox for including all fourteen (not just six) of the Tesla and Tesla related articles which were published in "Electrical Experimenter" between Feb.

The transaction precipitated a titanic power struggle between Edison’s direct-current systems and the Tesla-Westinghouse alternating-current approach, which eventually won out. Sadly this book is "too" small and he just gives us a very brief glimpse of his inventions and ideas. Riguardo alla fionda vi voglio raccontare una delle mie imprese con questo antico strumento di guerra che lascerà di stucco il lettore. In May 1888 George Westinghouse, head of the Westinghouse Electric Company in Pittsburgh, bought the patent rights to Tesla’s polyphase system of alternating-current dynamos, transformers, and motors.Energie despre care afirma că se găsește liberă pe Pământ și în Univers, sperând ca într-o zi s-o ofere oamenilor, fară niciun fel de costuri.
