Wizard - The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla

I've read and re-read this very complete biography, and recommend it for a good look at the master of electromagnetism.

He was such an interesting personality. So clever in the ways of EM, but so stubborn and self-destructive in business. He (literally) dreamed up the full system of AC because his professor (authority) told him it was impossible. Then he turns around and spends most of his professional career trying to woo the BMOC tycoons of the day in order to gain position and prestige.

All personal failings aside, however, Tesla turns out to be the undisputed king of electric power and radio too! Check him out.

I'm voting for Peace.
