Details: Explore the War of the Currents and the Individual Lives of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison
Two captivating manuscripts in one book:
- Nikola Tesla: A Captivating Guide to the Life of a Genius Inventor
- Thomas Edison: A Captivating Guide to the Life of a Genius Inventor
What happened to both of them?
And what were their lives like from beginning to end?
These are just some of the questions this book aims to answer so you can come to your own conclusion about the question; who was the better inventor, Nikola Tesla, or Thomas Edison?

His claim that “harnessing the forces of nature was the only worthwhile scientific endeavor" both impressed and enraged the scientific community. Eventually, his peers could no longer dismiss his eccentricities and began to view him as a crackpot — a potentially dangerous one.

- Education and Early Career
