Move over, Thomas Edison! Established biographer Elizabeth Rusch sheds light on this extraordinary figure, while fine artist Oliver Dominguez brings his life and inventions to vivid color. By the time he was a teenager, he had made a vow: Someday I will turn the power of Niagara Falls into electrical energy. Here is the story from the ambitious young man who brought life-changing suggestions to America, regardless of the obstructive efforts of his hero-turned-rival, Thomas Edison. Remote controls, fluorescent lights, X-rays, speedometers, cell phones, even the radio — all resulted from Nikola Tesla's inventions. Nikola Tesla takes the spotlight inside a biography with the man who pioneered modern electrical engineering — and altered the course of history. From using alternating present to light up the Chicago World's Fair to harnessing Niagara to electrify New York City and beyond, Nikola Tesla was a revolutionary ahead of his time. When a Serbian boy named Nikola Tesla was three, he stroked his cat and was enchanted by the electrical sparks.
