Wizard: The Life And Times Of Nikola Tesla : Biography Of A Genius (Citadel Press Book)

"[Wizard] brings the many complex facets of [Tesla's] personal and technical life together in to a cohesive whole. . .. I highly recommend this biography of a great technologist." --A.A. Mullin, U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command, COMPUTING REVIEWS

"[Along with A Beautiful Mind] one of the five best biographies written on the brilliantly disturbed." --WALL STREET JOURNAL

"Wizard is a compelling tale presenting a teeming, vivid world of science, technology, culture and human lives." --NEW SCIENTIST

"Marc Seifer is an excellent writer and scholar, who has produced a wonderfully readable and illuminating biography of one of the most intriguing men of this century. . . mak[ing] us understand not only the man, but also the times in which he lived. . . . [A] masterpiece." --NELSON DEMILLE

"The author presents much new material. . . [and] bases his book on a large number of archival and primary sources. . .. Underneath the layers of hero worship, the core of Seifer's book is a serious piece of scholarship." --Ronald Kline, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN

"Seifer has done a remarkable job going through all the Tesla manuscripts. . . ferret[ing] out hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles in which he traces out Tesla's public image [and] offers a reasonable reconstruction of Tesla's emotional world. . . . Seifer has significantly advanced our understanding of Tesla." --Bernard Carlson, author of Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age, for ISIS

"It is my opinion that Dr. Seifer leads the world as the most authoritative of all the Tesla researchers." --J.W. McGINNIS, President, International Tesla Society

"Far and away the best job among Tesla biographies." --Jeffrey D. Kooistra, INFINITE ENERGY

"Wizard is . . . utterly absorbing with chapters charting all stages of Tesla's life. . .. Seifer treats his prodigious subject with sympathy and realism." --NEXUS

"Wizard. . . presents a much more accurate. . . picture of Tesla. . .. [It] is thorough, informative, entertaining and a valuable addition to electrotechnological history, past and future." --ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING TIMES

"In modern times, Tesla may be enjoying a comeback thanks to books like Wizard." --THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Here is a deep and comprehensive biography of a great engineer of early electrical science. Indeed, it is likely to become the definitive biography of the Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla. . . .. Highly recommended." --AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE
