2011 Reprint of 1919 Edition. Published in six parts 1919 in the Electrical Experimenter Magazine. My Inventions is Telsa's autobiographical legacy. Long out of print, My Inventions reveals how a relentless photographic memory and runaway imagination almost fatally cursed his childhood in Yugoslavia. Tesla tells how he willfully harnessed his visions to invention, yet never outgrew his many bizarre childhood fears and compulsions. This is the famous story of Tesla's Faustian quest for the electric motor the experts said could never be built-a quest deep into his own unconscious mind that nearly cost him his life.
