Nikola Tesla was responsible for many electrical inventions, but is largely unheard of. Using Tesla's own writings, court transcripts and FBI files, this book pieces together the true extent of Tesla's scientific genius and tells the tale of how his name came to be so widely forgotten.



1. Wings Of Fire.

2. The Best Thing About You is You

3. The Alchemist

4. The Seven Habits of Highly effective People.
