In 1919, Nikola Tesla wrote several articles for the magazine The Electrical Experimenter. These pieces have been gathered together here. In the last few decades of his life, he ended up living in diminished circumstances as a recluse in Room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel, occasionally making unusual statements to the press. Because of his pronouncements and the nature of his work over the years, Tesla gained a reputation in popular culture as the archetypal ‘mad scientist’. He died impoverished and in debt on January 7, 1943. When he passed, Tesla didn’t leave behind much material for the general public. Also, he didn’t have many close friends who would have had insight into his life sufficient to write about him. Since My Inventions is an autobiography, it is unique in providing a glimpse into Tesla’s mind and his private thoughts. It tells about the man, his motivations and the values that he held. My Inventions is a required read for anyone wanting to know more about one of the greatest inventors of the 20th century – and perhaps of all time.
