Electrical Wizard: How Nikola Tesla Lit Up the World by Elizabeth RuschMove over, Thomas Edison! Nikola Tesla takes the spotlight in a biography of the man who pioneered modern electrical engineering — and changed the course of history.
When a Serbian boy named Nikola Tesla was three, he stroked his cat and was enchanted by the electrical sparks. By the time he was a teenager, he had made a vow: Someday I will turn the power of Niagara Falls into electricity. Here is the story of the ambitious young man who brought life-changing ideas to America, despite the obstructive efforts of his hero-turned-rival, Thomas Edison. From using alternating current 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. Remote controls, fluorescent lights, X-rays, speedometers, cell phones, even the radio — all resulted from Nikola Tesla’s inventions. Established biographer Elizabeth Rusch sheds light on this extraordinary figure, while fine artist Oliver Dominguez brings his life and inventions to vivid color.

The greatest Serb scientist Nikola Tesla and his many important discoveries will receive a new audience, thanks to not one but two new films about the great man and his life. Batman actor Christian Bale has been linked to this big screen project since February , when internet rumours first circulated about his appearance in a Tesla biopic. If Batman actor Bale does make the move from the Dark Knight to the inventor of electric light, his performance is likely to be held up to intense scrutiny by those who believe that Tesla has been hard done by in the history of invention. The internet can be a rats nest of rumour and unsubstantiated gossip coming out of Hollywood, much of it used to inflate the value of a project and attract greater interest from investors, but this is one rumour that appears to ring true. So far, Bale being linked to the film has attracted mostly positive reaction from Tesla watchers and Serbs.
This is the documentary film about Nikola Tesla, the scientist and inventor, one of the greatest men in history.

The Serbian-American scientist was a brilliant and eccentric genius whose inventions enabled modern-day power and mass communication systems. His nemesis and former boss, Thomas Edison, was the iconic American inventor of the light bulb, the phonograph and the moving picture. The two feuding geniuses waged a "War of Currents" in the s over whose electrical system would power the world — Tesla's alternating-current AC system or Edison's rival direct-current DC electric power. Amongst science nerds, few debates get more heated than the ones that compare Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. So, who was the better inventor? From their starkly different personalities to their lasting legacies, here's how the two dueling inventors stack up. Tesla had an eidetic memory , which meant he could very precisely recall images and objects.
