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
Who was the real winner in the war of the currents?

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?

Obsessive, brilliant, and tortured, Nikola Tesla was lauded for his invention of the alternating current (AC), and other significant contributions to science. 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.

The part of this book that covers mostly Nikola Tesla includes topics such as:
  • Childhood
  • Education and Early Career
  • Patents and Politics
  • The Eccentric Genius
  • Tesla’s Coil and the Niagara Contract
  • Influential Friends and the Lure of Flight
  • The Wardenclyffe Tower
  • 1914 and Beyond
  • And much more!
Thomas Edison was born into a hard-working but attentive family. He struggled in school and became deaf at an early age. Born on February 11, 1847, Edison would become, arguably, the best-known American inventor of all time. His invention of the light bulb was one of more than 1,000 patents he held during his lifetime. Others included the phonograph, the electrical grid, and motion pictures. His work changed the way we see and hear the world around us.
