Tesla: Myth of the Lone Genius / Christopher Cooper


Consider this: Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. Newly uncovered information proves that the popular account of Tesla's life is itself very flawed. In The Truth About Tesla, Christopher Cooper sets out to prove that the conventional story not only oversimplifies history, but perpetuates a misunderstanding about the process of innovation itself. We set the record straight about the work of Tesla, tracing the origin of some of the greatest electrical inventions to a coterie of colorful characters that conventional history has all but forgotten.

Guest: Christopher Cooper, Energy & Environmental Policy Expert
Book: The Truth About Tesla: The Myth of the Lone Genius in the History of Innovation
