Here is the story of the ambitious young man who brought life-changing ideas to America, despite the obstructive efforts of his hero-turned-rival, Thomas Edison. From using alternating current to light up the Chicago World's Fair to harnessing Niagara to electrify New York City and beyond, Nikola Tesla was a revolutionary ahead of his time. Remote controls, fluorescent lights, X-rays, speedometers, cell phones, even the radio -- all resulted from Nikola Tesla's inventions.

Electrical Wizard tells of the discoveries and story of Nicola Tesla. He was intrigued by electrical energy from the time he was very small, and would create different experiments even as a child in effort to produce electricity. It helped the kids and I to understand how electricity works, all the while learning about this famous discoverer and inventor. Along the way, we also learn bits about his rival, Thomas Edison. The end of the book offers more detailed explanations of both AC and DC electricity, magnetism and more for those who wish to dive deeper… my kids did.
