Electrical Wizard: How Nikola Tesla Lit Up the World: Elizabeth Rusch, Oliver Dominguez. Move 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. Nikola Tesla Inventions, Tesla Lighter, Nicola Tesla, Tesla S, Thing 1, Electrical Engineering, The Life, Retro, New York

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.
