Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong.The Truth About Teslasets the record straight.

Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest electrical inventors who ever lived. For years, the engineering genius was relegated to relative obscurity, his contributions to humanity (we are told) obscured by a number of nineteenth-century inventors and industrialists who took credit for his work or stole his patents outright.

Former Senior Fellow at the Institute for Energy and the Environment, Cooper has traveled the globe analyzing the most effective method...
