Publisher’s Description: 

The story of one of the most prolific, independent, and iconoclastic inventors of this century . . . fascinating.Scientific American

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology. Among Teslas creations were the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy, and the giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls.

This essential biography is illustrated with sixteen pages of photographs, including the July 20, 1931, Time magazine cover for an issue celebrating the inventors career.

Wizard is a truly remarkable biography of a remarkable man. The expression ahead of his time is used too loosely and too often today but in the case of Nikola Tesla ahead of his time barely describes the genius of this man. Marc Seifer makes us understand not only the man but the times in which he lived.Nelson DeMille

A deep and comprehensive biography of a great engineer of early electrical sciencelikely to become the definitive biography. Highly recommended.American Association for the Advancement of Science

Vivid, revelatory . . . the fullest account yet of Tesla as an entrepreneur, experimental physicist and inventor.Publishers Weekly
