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.… (mere)

It's strange when you lose interest in a book. I'm up to page 234/354 and feel that Margaret Cheney has lost me. I'm not sure if I want forge on and finish the book when I'm not enjoying it. It's not that Tesla isn't interesting or that I'm not interested in what ultimately happened to him. It's more that there is something missing in Cheney's portrayal of Tesla.

It could be that she is just not able to explain the intricacies of how Tesla solved AC, or radio tuning, or wireless power transmission? It could be that there seems to be no sense of the sequential nature of his discoveries? It could be that Tesla's successes become a series of unrelenting failures.

Yet such prescience: About his solar powerhouse, he wrote
... a great deal less artificial than for men to delve down into the bowels of the earth...in order to get a few handfuls of coal to run an engine for a short time (p. 156)

About radio (it could have been the internet)
Thus the entire earth will be converted into a huge brain capable of response in every one of its parts. (p. 224)

life of Nikola Tesla (1856–1943), the Serbian-American inventor.

هو والد الاتصالات اللاسلكية والتيار المتناوب وتكنولوجيا الرادار والطاقة الشمسية. ساعدت أفكار نيكولا تسلا في جعل العالم الحديث على ما هو عليه اليوم. وبينما صنع إديسون وماركوني وآخرون الملايين، مات تسلا فقيراً بمفرده ولم تعد عليه أعماله بشيء.
لكن إن أردنا إنصاف تسلا بجملة واحدة، يمكننا القول بدون مبالغة أنه هو الذي «اخترع القرن العشرين». ( )

Only ok. Saved by being about a fascinating guy (Tesla). Seems that there isn't much to go off of on him, so all the extra pages in this didn't seem necessary.

Despite the flashy, dramatic, and often limelight attention that Nikola Tesla was given in the heyday of his reign in the fields of research and engineering, he maintained a very private personal life.
