Everyone should read this book! Tesla is not only a great inventor…he is also one of the greatest thinkers and an amazing writer, too.
“The pressure of occupation and the incessant stream of impressions pouring into our consciousness thru all the gateways of knowledge make modern existence hazardous in many ways.”
Almost a century later…does it ring a bell?
Samantha Hunt has fabulously explained it in a nut-shell, “It was difficult for a vanilla American public, reeling from war, to lionize a foreign eccentric…”
An eccentric that “is responsible for our modern electrical system,” without which we wouldn’t even be able to surf the net, let alone do other “insignificant” things like watching TV, making a phone-call…oops, he’s responsible for the phone and the radio, too!
And, Mr. Kevin Kelly, if by “please don’t read this book if you wish to remain normal” you consider our every day “normalcy” that turns us into idiots on a regular basis then, by all means, I salute you!
