Great Lives in Graphics Nikola Tesla

In an engaging graphic style, this book explains to children aged 8 to 12 the world into which Tesla was born and lived. It details the circumstances of his childhood in the former Austrian Empire and the many influences that led to his life-long fascination and work led to advances in radio, lighting, X-rays, radar and electrical engineering, but also of how he got things wrong, made mistakes and made grand claims that have never been proven (such as the construction of a death ray!).

The book also tells readers of his famous feud with the rival inventor and engineer Thomas Edison and of Tesla’s many quirks and eccentricities, such as his obsession with number 3, his phobia of germs, his love of pigeons and his hatred of pearls.
