A life electric: A story of Nikola Tesla | Author: Azadeh Westergaard
A lyrical biography of the eccentric engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla. Exploring his ground-breaking inventions against the backdrop of his private life, A Life Electric introduces Nikola Tesla to young readers.
Born at the stroke of midnight during a lightning storm, Nikola Tesla grew up to become one of the most important electrical inventors in the world. But before working with electricity, he was a child who loved playing with the animals on his family's farm in Serbia. An inventor since childhood, Tesla's patents encompassed everything from radar and remote-control technology to wireless communications. But his greatest invention was the AC induction motor, which used alternating currents ( AC) to distribute electricity and which remains the standard for electric distribution today.
