I can't imagine a more thorough comprehensive account of Tesla's life. I absolutely loved the meticulous attention to detail presented here. Be prepared for lots of names and places to keep track of at times. But if you want to learn more about Tesla, it would be hard to beat this beautifully read unabridged biography. Very recommended.
