The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century by Robert Lomas
Everybody knows that Thomas Edison devised electric light, that Guglielmo Marconi thought up radio and George Westinghouse built the world's first hydro-electric power station. Everyone knows these 'facts', but they're wrong. The man who dreamt up these things was Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American scientist, who is perhaps this century's greatest unsung scientific hero. His story is one of amazing scientific triumphs followed by a catalogue of commercial disasters. This book tells for the first time the extraordinary tale of how Tesla's name came to be so widely forgotten.
