My Inventions


Penguin Classics has just reissued My Inventions, Nikola Tesla's highly unusual autobiography, with an Introduction written by me. Tesla originally published these pieces serially in Electrical Experimenter Magazine in 1919. When I first read My Inventions, I thought it was a hoax. It is not. So, if motors powered by Junebugs, Mark Twain's ghost, telepathic communications, pigeons, electricity, photographing thought, and pocket-size resonators that can destroy all of New York City are of interest to you, buy this book.
