A biography of Nikola Tesla, physicist, inventor, and electrical engineer.
"Why is Nikola Tesla unknown to every school child in this great country, and in fact, to all of our people? Why do only a small percent of electrical engineers recall the name of Nikola Tesla?"
The booklet contains the following articles: Tesla - A Great Inventor; Proceedings of the Radio Club of America, Inc. - Vol. 45, No. 2; Who Was Tesla?; Nikola Tesla, World's Greatest Engineer by Cmdr. E. J. Quinby, USN plus much other information.

Recounts the life and accomplishments of the Croatian-born engineer who developed alternating-current technology and invented the radio
The Tesla Testament - a thriller The deadliest weapon in history was invented over a century ago. It's more powerful than a nuclear blast and more lethal than all biochemical weapons. Its blueprints disappeared in the 1940's through US government action. The Tesla Testament is about how the most sinister terrorist group in the world, called Enbeaath or Rebirth Alliance, has unearthed the plans to rebuild it. Former undercover agent Francis Montagnet finds himself in a race against time to recover the plans and to stop the terrorists before they use the weapon for killing millions, including the leaders of the free world. Aided by the brilliant doctor Varenka Ulyanova--the Enbeaath leader's ex-lover--Francis outwits and outruns the terrorists across two continents. The final face-off is an epic battle for the survival of the free world and for the love of the beautiful Dr. Varenka.

In this “informative and delightful” (American Scientist) biography, Margaret Cheney explores the brilliant and prescient mind of Nikola Tesla, one of the twentieth century’s greatest scientists and inventors. In Tesla: Man Out of Time, Margaret Cheney explores the brilliant and prescient mind of one of the twentieth century's greatest scientists and inventors. Called a madman by his enemies, a genius by others, and an enigma by nearly everyone, Nikola Tesla was, without a doubt, a trailblazing inventor who created astonishing, sometimes world-transforming devices that were virtually without theoretical precedent. Tesla not only discovered the rotating magnetic field -- the basis of most alternating-current machinery -- but also introduced us to the fundamentals of robotics, computers, and missile science. Almost supernaturally gifted, unfailingly flamboyant and neurotic, Tesla was troubled by an array of compulsions and phobias and was fond of extravagant, visionary experimentations. He was also a popular man-about-town, admired by men as diverse as Mark Twain and George Westinghouse, and adored by scores of society beauties. From Tesla's childhood in Yugoslavia to his death in New York in the 1940s, Cheney paints a compelling human portrait and chronicles a lifetime of discoveries that radically altered -- and continue to alter -- the world in which we live. Tesla: Man Out of Time is an in-depth look at the seminal accomplishments of a scientific wizard and a thoughtful examination of the obsessions and eccentricities of the man behind the science.
