About the Author
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a Serbian-American engineer and physicist who made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power. He invented the first alternating current (AC) motor and developed AC generation and transmission technology. Tesla was famous and respected, but he was never able to translate his copious inventions into long-term financial successunlike his chief rival and early employer, Thomas Edison.
