Publisher Comments:

Here are the suppressed inventions of Nikola Tesla, all in one place, rendered in clear English and with 42 illustrations. Tesla was famous at the turn of the century for inventing the alternating-current system still in use today. But his later inventions, documented in some 30 U.S. patents between 1890 and 1921, have never been utilized as Tesla intended despite their obvious potential for advancing in fundamental ways the technology of modern civilization. Among these lost inventions: the disk-turbine rotary engine, the tesla-coil electric energy magnifier, high-frequency lighting systems, the magnifying transmitter, wireless power, and the free-energy receiver.
