    DescriptionNikola Tesla's life is as interesting for his idiosyncrasy as it is for his brilliance. The inventor's mind knew no limits and his incredible sense of possibility rings through his memoir. This authoritative volume of "My Inventions" includes three additional articles by Tesla which were published in "The Electrical Experimenter" magazine and represent the breadth of his interests: "Tesla would pour Lightning from Airships to Consume Foe" (1916), "The Action of The Eye" (1893), "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy" (1900). Samantha Hunt, author of "The Invention of Everything Else", contributes an introduction to Tesla's works, separating fact from fiction (there are published works out there that attest Tesla was an alien), while maintaining the natural awe of Tesla's eccentric existence.

    Author Information
    Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was born in Smiljan (modern-day Croatia). He emigrated to America in his youth and became a naturalized citizen in 1891. Tesla lived out the last ten years of his life at the Hotel New Yorker in solitude. He died in debt despite his numerous contributions and patents. Samantha Hunt is the author of two novels, including The Invention of Everything Else-about an imagined period in Tesla's life- which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize. She lives in Tivoli, New York.
