Publisher: Kensington Publishing Group

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited by many as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Yet very few people know about his life and work. Based on original source materials and previously unavailable documents, Wizard is the definitive biography of this founding father of modern technology.
For the first time, Wizard reveals the details of Tesla's struggles with competing contemporary inventors such as Edison, Steinmetz, and Marconi and with financial giants like J. R Morgan and John Jacob Astor, who underwrite his work.
An immaculately groomed figure, Tesla once lived at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York and dined at the finest restaurants. Tesla's genius was challenged, however, when his peers vilified his attempts to contact other planets. In the last years of his life, unable to secure financing for his newest inventions, he lived in semipoverty in a fourth-rate hotel.
Wizard brings to the fore the intriguing life of this legendary innovator.

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
