Hmmm... I have to say, I wasn't overly impressed with this as a biography - the pacing was rather uneven, and it was very one sided - the authour seems to have made up their mind about Tesla regardless of actual fact, and so skims over anything that doesn't support her opinion. Now, I agree that tesla was essentially awesome, but this biog was so obviuosly written from a bias perspective it almost seems suspisious! I would far rather have had a warts n all read, to feel like I was getting a better, more rounded picture.

That said, Tesla had a very interesting life, and there is a lot of good reading in here about that. He is undoubtedly under recognised, and I think this book would be enjoyed as an introduction to his works.

Popped in the post as part of the wishlist tag game - enjoy!
