Books written by or about Nikola Tesla.

Books written by or about Nikola Tesla. Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency. In the year 1890 he severed his connection with the Westinghouse Company, since which time he has devoted himself entirely to the study of alternating currents of high frequencies and very high potentials, with which study he is at present engaged.

Biographical Sketch of Nikola Tesla. The boy was early put to his books, and upon his father's removal to Gospic he spent four years in the public school, and later, three years in the Real School, as it is called. While a large portion of the European family has been surging westward during the last three or four hundred years, settling the vast continents of America, another, but smaller, portion has been doing frontier work in the Old World, protecting the rear by beating back the "unspeakable Turk" and reclaiming gradually the fair lands that endure the curse of Mohammedan rule.

Nikola Tesla's Lecture "Experiments with Alternate Currents of High Potential and High Frequency", delivered before the Institution of Electrical Engineers, London, February 1892. Few are the books, let me say, which can make such an impression upon the mind of a student.

currents, and, to be more precise, with alternating currents of high potential and high frequency.

This investigation, then, it goes without saying, deals with alternating currents, and, to be more precise, with alternating currents of high potential and high frequency. Just in how much a very high frequency is essential for the production of the results presented is a question which, even with my present experience, would embarrass me to answer. I need not assure you that the many evidences which I have received that English scientific men and engineers were interested in this work have been for me a great reward and encouragement

Some of the experiments may be performed with low frequencies; but very high frequencies are desirable, not only on. .I take hold of it; I bring my body in contact with a wire conveying alternating currents of high potential, and the tube in my hand is brilliantly lighted.

This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience.

In this volume, a lecture given at the Institution of Electrical Engineers in London, brilliant inventor Nikola Tesla dazzles his audience with his keen insight and an array of experiments that pushed the boundaries of human knowledge. Tesla's discoveries, more than a century old, continue to astound students and scholars of the history of science. Serbian inventor NIKOLA TESLA (1857-1943) was a revolutionary scientist who forever changed the scientific fields of electricity and magnetism. Though he is now widely forgotten, Tesla's greatest invention, A/C current, powers almost all of the technological wonders in the world today, from home heating to computers to high-tech precision robotics.

The problem with reading older technical texts, especially from presentations, given pre-1930's is, the language is very flowery, unnecessarily complex, and overly filled with descriptive adjectives! Other than that, it's simply difficult to try and discern what the author is actually trying to say, over the top of how "Fantastically", "Superlative", their original claims are of being "Scientifically", "Unbelievably", and 'Uniquely", original!

It seem though, after reading the text for 20 to 30 minutes50 years , one can simply ignore the overly fantastic claims, to glean an adequate understanding of what, hopefully, they mean to convey. If you can read your way past the presumption, you actually might come away with a good understanding of what Mr. Tesla was attempting to tell his New York audience! It's all very interesting and almost too good to be true, if it wasn't already recorded in the history book, about 50 years before anyone listening to him would be able to understand what he was saying!!!
And that, unfortunately seems to be Mr. Tesla's undoing!

First just let me say that Nikola Tesla is so under-rated in US history. He deserved to be in the history books and as well known as his competitor Thomas Edison. That said, this was a pretty interesting book. It is taken from his lectures, so we have his thoughts as he was presenting.

It would have been more enjoyable if the diagrams that Tesla presented were included, but, sadly, they were not. I am not a scientist nor a brainiac on Tesla's level, so some of the things lost me -- and I found myself skipping over some of the details. Even with that deficit, it was highly enjoyable to read. There were some parts where you could just feel his excitement about future possibilities and even what he had already learned about ac/dc. I have to admit that I learned a lot also.

My bottom line is that my rating would have been 5 stars if it would have included those diagrams. Don't let that keep you away. It is always interesting to peer into someone else's mind!

I am interested in everything Tesla! This book is a transcript of his talk at a conference. Not an easy read but very interesting.

This was an interesting book, which discussed many of his experiments in his words. The one downside to reading it on my Kindle was the missing Figures from his lecture. I am assuming that a paper copy would contain the Figures, but maybe not. He refers to the Figures regularly throughout the lecture (book), and it was difficult to envision some of his experiments without them. The book was still well worth reading, especially if you are already familiar with some of his experiments.

Some diagrams and information from a lecture given by Tesla. Explains electromagnetic phenomenon experienced by Tesla while experimenting with High currents and high potentials. Some of the experiments can be re done by a home experimenter. there are also old schematics to follow.

Tesla was part of a group visionaries who looked into this world through a a different looking glass. An eccentric genius who asked questions, and found answers to many of them. His life was in many ways inspired by his times. In this work he explains his works on AC to an esteemed group of men. All the while showing deference to their station. By our standards the read is slow and plodding, but once read the book gives a small picture of a great man. I look forward to reading more works by him.

Well, you cannot review Nikola Tesla's Work!But you cannot read this book without the sketches and diagrams being referred to in his experiments.This needs to be included to comprehend the master's works.It is the publishers lapse and a significant one!
was a gift for my husband he really likes it.
