Nikola Tesla was an underappreciated inventor who did great things and didn’t get much credit. Even though he ENCOUNTERED many problems with rivals and loss, he EXPLORERED the boundaries of technology far ahead of his time. Tesla was a dreamer who has inspired multitudes of modern-day inventors to push the limits.
“The number of parallels between Tesla, and say Steve Jobs, are significant and significant enough to say there are indeed patterns and things that we can learn from understanding the creative mind of somebody like Nikola Tesla.”
—W. Bernard Carlson, author of Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age
"Tesla reminds us that like poets, technologists need to think hard but dream boldly. Only by doing both will we be able to use technology, as Tesla did, to create a little bit of heaven here on earth."
— W. Bernard Carlson, author of Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age.
"No one knows of Tesla, yet his work has changed all our lives. The high tech conveniences we take for granted - the cellular phone and television, for example- would not exist without Tesla."
— Dr. Carl Seifer,1997. author of Life and Times of Nikola Tesla.
"Were we to eliminate from our industrial world the result of Tesla’s work, the wheels of industry would cease to turn and our electric trains and cars would stop, our towns would be dark, our mills and factories dead. So far reaching is his work that it has become the warp and woof of industry. Should Tesla’s work be suddenly withdrawn, darkness would prevail and we would slump into darkness."
— New York City Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, 1943.
