Inspiring the inventions of radio, robots, and radar, Nikola Tesla is also considered a founding father of modern electricity. He created the alternating current channel, fluorescent and neon lights, wireless telegraphs, and the turbines which harnessed the water power of the Niagra. In this exhaustively researched testament to Tesla's genius and pioneering spirit, author Marc Seifer works to reveal Tesla as more than mere cult figure but rather as the scientific architect of modern technology.
Through vast amounts of source materials, Seifer's pursuit of the truth about Tesla was initially threefold: to uncover which inventions should be rightfully credited to Tesla, to uncover why Tesla had been erased from the annals of history, to uncover why Tesla's wireless venture, Wardenclyffe, funded for five years by J.P. Morgan, failed. As this biography will reveal, Seifer was able to establish that clean energy and renewable hydro-electric power architecture was primarily founded by Tesla, as well as the remote control, particle beam weapons, and what eventually evolved into the Osprey helicopter/airplane.
Marc J. Seifer, born in 1948, is an author, graphologist (handwriting expert), and professor of psychology. He has published over 70 works on Nikola Tesla, who was also the subject of his doctoral dissertation. In numerous fraud cases, Seifer has aided the government by studying the handwriting of the accused. His publications on graphology and psychology have been used as textbook material and by numerous periodicals. Seifer is considered a Tesla expert, as well, having researched large amounts of correspondence and archives, the FBI among them, and having interviewed friends family and relatives of Tesla.
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 Tesla's creations were the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy, and the giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls.
