    - the book is based on 5 articles Tesla published in a technical journal (Electrical Experimenter)
    - 1856-1943, born in Croatia, in a Serbian family. His father was an orthodox priest with a military education, he was also a man of vast reading and a spirited writer. His mother was a highly energetic woman and kept together the household (she used to plant seeds, grow the plants and turn them to fabric and clothes and had built the furniture in the house) and she used to invent tools to make her work easier.
    - as a kid, his father used to make him play mind exercises to improve his memory and reasoning
    - during childhood he was stricken by repeated episodes of hallucinations, which made him feel anxious. His self taught remedy consisted on intense focus on a close by object and in constructing a scenario about travelling to unknown places. This helped later his imagination in visualizing an object from every angle and in shaping mentally an idea into a device. When coming up with an idea, he first imagined the construct and made mentally the first calibrations and optimizations until the model was flawless and only then he would start building it. He concluded that this mechanism never failed to bring optimal results
    - his father had a vast library, but he would not let him read, he even confiscated the candles used for reading. This made young Tesla build fuses and cast his own candles
    - originally he was left handed, but later ambidextrous
    - after finishing highschool, he had contracted cholera and had to stay in bed for 9 months. The illness convinced his father to let him study engineering and not religion
    - after university, he moved to Budapest for his first job in a telegraphy company. He helped launching and improving the telephone main station. Later on he moved to Paris to work in an electrical company where he had come up and implemented multiple solutions
    - he moved to NY to work for Edison, but quits after a while
    - in 1886 he perfected the voltaic arc, to be used at street lighting
    - in 1887 he founded his own company, Electrical Company
    - biggest inventions: Tesla coil, AC distribution system, the fluorescent bulb, radio, remote control (proved in 1889 on a model boat), electric motor (1930), wireless communications and wireless electricty

    What a personality, rather bad ass, inventive, but with no business case skills. Excellent read
