Editors Note, August 28, 1995
This text has been entered by John R.H. Penner from a small booklet found
in a used bookstore for $2.50. The only form of date identification is the
name of the original purchaser, Arthua Daine (?), dated April 29, 1978.
The book appears to be considerably older, made with typewriters, and then
photocopied and stapled. The only other significant features of the
booklet is that it contains four photocopied photographs of Tesla, and was
originally forty pages long. I must apologise for the quality of the
scans, but the originals were of very poor quality, and this is the best
that could be obtained after touching-up in Photoshop.
The book has no Copyright identification, nor any means of contacting the
publishers. As far as I am aware, this autobiography is no longer
available in printed form anywhere.
In the interest of making this important text available to the wider
public, I have retyped the entire text word-for-word as it originally
appears into this electronic format. The only words which appear in this
file, that are not in the original book are this Editors Note, and the
Introduction. I have exactly maintained page numbers as they appear in the
original Ð including the somewhat odd artifact of Chapter 1 starting on
If anyone knows how to reach the original publisher, please contact me at
the below address, so proper credit may be given where it is due.
