Who was Nikola Tesla?

Overview

Everyone knows the name "Tesla" today. At least anyone interested in cars. Who was the man who registered 112 patents all his life and was obviously groundbreaking and is the name of the automobileCompany Tesla was?

What many people know: Tesla, whose foundation history you can read in this article series, is currently heavily mixing the global automotive industry and has become a nightmare for many traditional manufacturers.

Rise and fall of a genius

Overview

What many people do not know is that Tesla is not an artistic word that some marketing people or art historians have thought up.

When the name Tesla was chosen, it was a bow to a man who is considered by experts to be the inventor of the electric age. This man was named Nikola Tesla. He is also called the "magician of electricity".

Ingenious physicist, inventor and engineer

Overview

"The inventor of the electric age" - this is the subtitle of the biography of Nikola Tesla written by the American technical historian W. Bernard Carlson and which has now been published in German. To put it briefly: an exciting and informative biography that was rightly awarded several times.

The reason is not only that the book is great. Past biographies have paid tribute to Nikola Tesla as a kind of superman. Carlson, on the other hand, not only wants to celebrate the ingenious physicist, inventor and engineer, but also critically consider it. And while previous Tesla biographers have focused largely on his personality, Carlson seeks to honor man and his creative work.

Innovation and distruption

Overview

Carlson's book is written alive, and one learns a lot, even over the time Tesla lived. Absolutely readable the almost 30 pages long epilogue. On the basis of Tesla's life and work, Carlson addresses the question of what Nikola Tesla is able to learn about the process of inventing inventions and the role of innovation in the economy.

Conclusion: Who wants to know who the man was, to whom the most modern car of the present owes his name, does not come around this biography about Nikola Tesla. The book is also a source of inspiration for anyone interested in innovation and disruption, in invention and marketing, in the lab and in the market. A big book, a great book.
