    Nikola Tesla invented the radio, the induction motor, the neon lamp, and the remote control. His brilliant but decidedly strange persona, however, prevented his most advanced ideas from being recognized for decades. Biographer Richard Munson shines a light on a magnificently bizarre genius.

    Author Richard Munson will discuss his latest book, Tesla: Inventor of the Modern. Drawing together details from letters, notebooks and other primary sources, the book reveals the personal life and mindset of an underappreciated genius--a man who drew up designs for the Internet, cell phones and wireless charging a century before their common use. His story is a reminder that technology can transcend the marketplace and that profit is not the only motivation for invention.
