A magazine interview with Nikola Tesla in his laboratory, a man often considered the most brilliant American inventor. This article presents a fascinating overview of the genius at the very peak of his illustrious career.

One does not appreciate Tesla's greatness, until you realize that at the time people still used gas for lighting and traveled about in horsedrawn buggies.


Among the miracles described in this audiobook article are Nikola Tesla's inventions of hydro-electric power generation, solar-electric power generation, wireless power distribution, high-voltage coils (which are used to power all of our automobiles on the road today), radio communication, videophones, cold-light, wireless lighting, and a nitrogen fertilizing machine.

Nikola Tesla was born midnight of July 9-10, 1856, and died midnight of January 7-8, 1943. Tesla was a trained engineer specializing in the infant field of electricity. He was gifted with a keen sense of hearing and the ability to clearly visualize concepts in his mind. Tesla held over 110 US patents (700 worldwide), and, among other things, is personally responsible for inventing AC electricity (which is used to power the entire world today).
