FREE Biography – The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century!


The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century
Robert Lomas
4 stars

Everybody knows that Thomas Edison devised electric light and domestic electricity supplies, that Guglielmo Marconi thought up radio and George Westinghouse built the world’s first hydro-electric power station. Everybody knows these ‘facts’ but they are wrong.

The man who dreamt up these things also invented, inter-alia, the fluorescent light, seismology, a worldwide data communications network and a mechanical laxative. His name was Nikola Tesla, a Serbian-American scientist, and his is without doubt this century’s greatest unsung scientific hero.

His life story is an extraordinary series of scientific triumphs followed by a catalog of personal disasters. Perpetually unlucky and exploited by everyone around him, credit for Tesla’s work was appropriated by several of the West’s most famous entrepreneurs: Edison, Westinghouse and Marconi among them. After his death, information about Tesla was deliberately suppressed by the FBI.

Using Tesla’s own writings, contemporary records, court transcripts and recently released FBI files, The Man who Invented the Twentieth Century pieces together for the first time the true extent of Tesla’s scientific genius and tells the amazing tale of how his name came to be so widely forgotten.
