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.
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."
Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft. Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla's private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an "idealist" inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion. This major biography sheds new light on Tesla's visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.
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 Tesla Legacy
"Forget the bloody Da Vinici code, Mick. We've got to crack the Tesla Legacy. If we don't we're both dead." Despite the Pentagon, it had to be found... 'Forget the bloody Da Vinci Code, Mick. We've got to crack the tesla Legacy. If we don't, we're both dead.' Newcastle electrician Mick Vincent had almost everything in life he wanted. Jesse Osbourne, the Stockton bookshop owner he loved.

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. Mick and Jesse's only clues are a lost mountain of copper ore and an old racehorse called tears of Fire. Robert G.

An Atlas of Another America
Owning a home is the pinnacle of the American Dream, the ultimate status symbol of the middle class. But is the dream in crisis? As the suburban single-family home has been endlessly multiplied and mass-marketed, it has become entwined with environmental catastrophe and economic crisis. Never before have we been so badly in need of a reconsideration of our cultural values and consumption from an architectural perspective. With An Atlas of Another America, Keith Krumwiede has written a bold and highly original work of speculative architectural fiction that calls on Americans--and, increasingly, the rest of the world--to seriously reconsider the concept of the single-family home. Krumwiede's "Freedomland" is a fictional utopia of communal superhomes constructed from the remains of the suburban metropolis. Eschewing formal innovation for its own sake, Freedomland's radical architects rely on artful appropriation and the reorganization of found forms. Krumwiede produces the complete plans for Freedomland in the style of a historical architectural treatise, supplemented with more than two hundred plans and drawings and five essays that draw on a long lineage of architectural thought--from Piranesi to Ledoux, Branzi, and Koolhaas. Among the essays, "Atypical Plans" is a redaction of Koolhaas's landmark text "Typical Plan," "Supermodel Homes" looks at the mad genius of developer David Weekley," and "New Homes for America" is a short story in which a young architect produces new forms of communal living.
