Thank you! All of you who have bought Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity have helped spread the word of Nikola Tesla to over 78,000 new readers (and counting) in a dozen countries. And now Edison: The Inventor of the Modern World is in stores and selling well too. Since this success is entirely due to all of you, this page highlights, well, you! Scroll down for great photos, and if you send me your favorite photo holding my book, I’ll post them too.

Check out these photos sent to me by fans (if you send me yours, I’ll post it here too!). There are also photos of historic meetings:

I have never read such a beautiful book! Loved it!”

“There are several biographies about Nicola Tesla however this one by David Kent is more informative, easy to understand, fun! and just a damn good book. I read the entire book in a 24 hour period, I could not put it down and that does not happen very often. If you want to understand why you enjoy all the comforts of electricity than get a copy of this book you will not be disappointed. Kent is just one of those people who knows how to tell a story.”  – Alexander Stevens, Facebook

In addition, Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity has received high praise from:
