In Tesla: Man Out of Time, Margaret Cheney explores thebrilliant and prescient mind of one of the twentieth century'sgreatest scientists and inventors. Called a madman by his enemies,a genius by others, and an enigma by nearly everyone, Nikola Teslawas, without a doubt, a trailblazing inventor who createdastonishing, sometimes world-transforming devices that werevirtually without theoretical precedent. Tesla not only discoveredthe rotating magnetic field -- the basis of mostalternating-current machinery -- but also introduced us to thefundamentals of robotics, computers, and missile science. Almostsupernaturally gifted, unfailingly flamboyant and neurotic, Teslawas troubled by an array of compulsions and phobias and was fond ofextravagant, visionary experimentations. He was also a popularman-about-town,admired by men as diverse as Mark Twain and GeorgeWestinghouse, and adored by scores of society beauties.From Tesla's childhood in Yugoslavia to his death in New York inthe 1940s, Cheney paints a compelling human portrait and chroniclesa lifetime of discoveries that radically altered -- and continue toalter -- the world in which we live. Tesla: Man Out of Timeis an in-depth look at the seminal accomplishments of a scientificwizard and a thoughtful examination of the obsessions andeccentricities of the man behind the science.
