Not an easy listen

It was difficult to endure the repeated mispronounciations and overworked elocution. Both archaic and technical terms were mispronounced or simply replaced with common terms, to the detriment of the listening experience.

Tesla was an extremely interesting person.

I did know some about Tesla before listening to this but he was a much more interesting man than I think most of us realize.

The narration really made me feel like it was Tesla actually talking. Highly recommended.

Tesla is a fascinating person

Nikola Tesla is a far more interesting, quirky character than I had previously realized. In this autobiography, he talks about his mental and physical health as well as family relationships.
The reading of this particular book was superb and served to further improve the story.
