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.
