Overview

The fascinating autobiography of the legendary inventor behind the radio, wireless energy, robotics, and much more.

This book is a great companion to the new PBS American Experience documentary Tesla, written and produced by David Grubin and executive produced by Mark Samels. Tesla premieres on American Experience Tuesday, October, 18, 2016, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET (check local listings) on PBS. 

Famous for his pioneering contributions to the electronic age, his lifelong feud with Thomas Edison, and his erratic behavior, Nikola Tesla was one of the most brilliant and daring inventors and visionaries of his time. 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. This volume also includes three articles by Tesla, as well as an enlightening introduction that discredits many of the myths surrounding the thinker’s eccentric life. This rare window into the industrial age’s most tragic genius will fascinate historians, scientists, aspiring inventors, and curious fans alike.
