Ma Vie et Ma Recherche l Autobiographie de Nikola Tesla
Édition 2016, revue et augmentée avec une addition de 100 pages de rares photographies de Nikola Tesla ainsi que l'histoire tragique entre Edison et Tesla. L'histoire est écrite par les vainqueurs. Mais ce n'est que peu de confort pour ceux barrés par la plume des éditeurs. Pendant des années, les manuels de science ont assimilé l'électricité et la lumière avec un seul homme, Thomas Edison, tandis que le nom du génie dont les technologies électriques qui alimentent le monde moderne languit dans une note mineure de l'histoire scientifique. Avant le début du 20e siècle, l'électricité était une simple curiosité scientifique. Nikola Tesla, sans doute plus que quiconque, a changé cela. Mais les recherches de Tesla sur l'électricité ne représentent qu'une partie des innovations scientifiques et techniques qui l'ont élevé au titre de génie. Ma Vie et Ma Recherche : l'Autobiographie de Nikola Tesla comporte quatre parties : une introduction sur la vie de Tesla, l'autobiographie de Tesla, certains des plus importants travaux de Tesla expliqués en termes simples, une collection de cent pages de rares photographies prises à plusieurs étapes de la vie de Tesla, datant de son certificat de naissance, à la première photographie prise avec une lumière phosphorescente, jusqu'à la dernière photographie prise avant sa mort, en 1943. Édition 2016, 310 pages.
The Croatian-American inventor recounts the story of his life, from his schooling and work in Europe to development of the alternating-current induction motor. Includes "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy."
Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft. Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla's private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an "idealist" inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion. This major biography sheds new light on Tesla's visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.
Very Truly Yours Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla was a man of letters. He wrote many letters to the editors of the magazines and newspapers of his day. These letters give a fascinating glimpse into the mind of an eccentric genius. Collected here for the first time are more than forty of Nikola Tesla's letters. The subject matter ranges widely, as Tesla was interested in almost everything. In these letters he responds to Marconi and Edison, gives his thoughts on the wars of his day, corrects inconsistencies in news reports, and much much more. Nikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the 20th Century. Without Tesla's ground-breaking work we'd all be sitting in the dark without even a radio to listen to.
