"Tesla: Man Out of Time" by Margaret Cheney
A few days ago I finished re-reading Margaret Cheney's "Tesla: Man Out of Time". As if I hadn't experienced enough grief reading it the first time, I had to go and do it again. Well what can I say, the book really is worth reading over and over and over again.
I've done my fair share of Tesla reading, biographies and research and everything I've been able to get my hands on. And I can say, this is definitely the best written, most informative, most comprehensive biography of him I've ever come across. Where other books have a general tendency of focusing mostly on certain periods or aspects of Tesla's life, this book does a fine job bringing the pieces of the puzzle together. The book paints a much more realistic picture of Tesla's life, who he was, and what he was like in his personal life.
This of course means that when you read about all that this world did to him, you're going to experience an especially sharp pain in the soul.
