Sneak Preview of the New Book – Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity

Today is a day that will live in my memory for a long time. It is the day I received the first actual hard copy of Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity. In a word, the book is amazing. In a few more words, it is like nothing you have ever seen before in a Tesla biography.

As you can see, the book is designed to be visually appealing. The cover is a vibrant – go ahead, you can call it electrifying – blue and features a photograph of Nikola Tesla and the visage of his famed Wardenclyffe tower. Look closer to see hints of lightning and radio.

The goal of the book is to reach out to those who want to learn about Nikola Tesla…or who want to learn about the history of invention in the United States…or who, well, just want to have fun with science. Inside, the book is highly illustrated. Photographs, drawings, even cartoons are laced throughout to highlight the text and bring Tesla to life. You can see the table of contents in an earlier article.

In addition to the wonderful graphics are many call-out quotes and stories. You can giggle along with his assistants as Tesla introduces Mark Twain to his oscillating device. Marvel at the roaring falls as Tesla and Westinghouse team up to harness Niagara. Root for him as he takes on Edison and Marconi, and even Einstein. The combination of stories and illustrations seeks to bring Nikola Tesla to the people in a way that those who understand his inventions and those who do not can both appreciate.

Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity officially publishes on June 30th. It will be available in Barnes and Noble stores and online. I hope you like it.

  1. congratulations on this David. it looks as though you’ve done Mr.Tesla proud — and Iknow several freinds with connections to Serbia who will be glad to hear about your book.

    • Thanks, Kerry. It’s been a long wait for the book to finally show up after finishing it last year. I’m hoping to get a trip in to Serbia so any contacts you have are great.

  2. Looks wonderful David, is there any chance of me ordering it and getting it sent down to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico…or should I just have it sent to a relative in Dallas, Texas. Let me know. Julia Cynthia Kent

    • Hi Julia. I’m working on getting from the publisher all the details about how to order it and will be sure to ask about sending to other countries. It should be available online at barnesandnoble.com. I’ll post an article here as soon as I have more details.
