Ma Vie et Ma Recherche l Autobiographie de Nikola Tesla
Édition 2016, revue et augmentée avec une addition de 100 pages de rares photographies de Nikola Tesla ainsi que l'histoire tragique entre Edison et Tesla. L'histoire est écrite par les vainqueurs. Mais ce n'est que peu de confort pour ceux barrés par la plume des éditeurs. Pendant des années, les manuels de science ont assimilé l'électricité et la lumière avec un seul homme, Thomas Edison, tandis que le nom du génie dont les technologies électriques qui alimentent le monde moderne languit dans une note mineure de l'histoire scientifique. Avant le début du 20e siècle, l'électricité était une simple curiosité scientifique. Nikola Tesla, sans doute plus que quiconque, a changé cela. Mais les recherches de Tesla sur l'électricité ne représentent qu'une partie des innovations scientifiques et techniques qui l'ont élevé au titre de génie. Ma Vie et Ma Recherche : l'Autobiographie de Nikola Tesla comporte quatre parties : une introduction sur la vie de Tesla, l'autobiographie de Tesla, certains des plus importants travaux de Tesla expliqués en termes simples, une collection de cent pages de rares photographies prises à plusieurs étapes de la vie de Tesla, datant de son certificat de naissance, à la première photographie prise avec une lumière phosphorescente, jusqu'à la dernière photographie prise avant sa mort, en 1943. Édition 2016, 310 pages.

Very Truly Yours Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla was a man of letters. He wrote many letters to the editors of the magazines and newspapers of his day. These letters give a fascinating glimpse into the mind of an eccentric genius. Collected here for the first time are more than forty of Nikola Tesla's letters. The subject matter ranges widely, as Tesla was interested in almost everything. In these letters he responds to Marconi and Edison, gives his thoughts on the wars of his day, corrects inconsistencies in news reports, and much much more. Nikola Tesla has been called the most important man of the 20th Century. Without Tesla's ground-breaking work we'd all be sitting in the dark without even a radio to listen to.
The Croatian-American inventor recounts the story of his life, from his schooling and work in Europe to development of the alternating-current induction motor. Includes "The Problem of Increasing Human Energy."
The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century
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. Nikola Tesla is the engineer who gave his name to the unit of magnetic flux. The Man Who Invented the Twentieth Century. Robert's biography of his childhood hero was launched at the 1999 Orkney Science Festival, where Robert gave a talk on Tesla in conjunction with Andrej Detela from the Department of Low and Medium Energy Physics at the Jozef Stefan Institute in Ljubijana, Slovenia. Reviews Robert Gaitskell, a vice-president of the Institution of Electrical Engineers, writing in the Times Higher Education Supplement, said: "Robert Lomas is to be congratulated on an easy-to-read life of a tortured genius. The book not only takes takes us through the roller-coaster fortunes of Tesla, but also has well-constructed chapters on the history of electrical research and on lighting. Although dealing at times, with difficult technical concepts, it never succumbs to jargon and remains intelligible to the informed lay-person throughout. Every scientist or engineer would enjoy this tale of errant brilliance, and a younger student would be enthused towards a research career." Angus Clarke, writing in the Times Metro Magazine said: "Nikola Tesla is the forgotten genius of electricity. He invented or laid the groundwork for many things we take for granted today including alternating current, radio, fax and e-mail. A Croatian immigrant to America in 1884 Tesla combined genius with gaping character flaws and an uncanny ability to be ripped off by everyone. This is scientific popularisation at its most readable." Engineering and Technology Magazine said: "This book is fun, which is not something one often says about engineering books...Tesla is most widely known for the magnetic unit that bears his name, but sadly little else. This book is a thoroughly entertaining way of correcting that injustice, a must for engineers, especially electrical ones."
Profiles the great men and women scientists who have contributed to some of the most important scientific breakthroughs in history, including Copernicus, Einstein, Curie, and the Leakeys.
Medicine as a Profession for Women
In inviting consideration to the subject of medicine as an occupation for women, it is not a simple theory that we wish to present, but the results of practical experience. For fourteen years we have been students of medicine; for eight years we have been engaged in the practice of our profession in New York; and during the last five years have, in addition, been actively occupied in the support of a medical charity. We may therefore venture to speak with some certainty on this subject; and we are supported by the earnest sympathy of large numbers of intelligent women, both in England and America, in presenting this subject for the first time to the public. The idea of the education of women in medicine is not now an entirely new one; for some years it has been discussed by the public, institutions have been founded professing to accomplish it, and many women are already engaged in some form of medical occupation. Yet the true position of women in medicine, the real need which lies at the bottom of this movement, and the means necessary to secure its practical usefulness and success, are little known. We believe it is now time to bring this subject forward and place it in its true light, as a matter not affecting a few individuals only, but of serious importance to the community at large; and demanding such support as will allow of the establishment of an institution for the thorough education of women in medicine. When the idea of the practice of medicine by women is suggested the grounds on which we usually find sympathy expressed for it are two. The first is, that there are certain departments of medicine in which the aid of women physicians would be especially valuable to women. The second argument is, that women are much in need of a wider field of occupation, and if they could successfully practice any branches of medicine it would be another opening added to the few they already possess. In some shape or other, these two points are almost universally regarded (where the matter has been considered at all) as the great reasons to be urged in its behalf.

He also finds a diary belonging to Nikola tesla, the electronics genius reputed to be smarter than Einstein. But just what did tesla build in outback New South Wales in 1925? the Pentagon knows, and the race is on to be the first to find the tesla Legacy.
