The Truth about Tesla

Product Details

About the Author

Christopher Cooper is an expert in energy policy and is a Senior Research Fellow at Vermont Law School's Institute for Energy & the Environment. He has traveled the globe analyzing the most effective methods of harnessing the sun's energy -- from solar towers in South Korea to massive photovoltaic arrays in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. He has written extensively on solar power and the effects of solar activity on electrical systems, including designing a comprehensive plan to protect the North American electricity grid from impending solar storms. His work is published widely in academic journals and trade press from Energy Policy to The Electricity Journal. In 2005, he founded the New York-based Network for New Energy Choices, a non-profit organisation devoted to expanding distributed generation and consumer choice in electricity markets. He graduated from Wake Forest University, where he studied politics and ancient religions, holds a master's degree in communication theory from the University of Miami, and earned a J.D. with a certificate in energy law from Vermont Law School (America's top-ranked energy & environmental law program, according to U.S. News & World Report).


"Tesla is an enigmatic figure whose life and achievements appeal to historians, engineers, scientists, and many others, and this volume will touch them all in different ways. Everyone from new readers to Tesla historians are sure to find something of interest here." - Library Journal "His (Christopher Cooper) premise is that every scientific luminary, not just Newton, sees farther by standing on the shoulders of giants. Much of the text recounts not only the stories of Tesla's inventions, but also of the discoveries and developments of earlier researchers on whose work Tesla's is based. It tells, too, of some who tried to pirate Tesla's inventions and claim them as their own." - Mechanical Engineering
