Summary, etc.:
"The authors Marko Perko and Stephen M. Stahl, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc., propose a "new- style biography" entitled T E S L A: His Tremendous and Troubled Life. They will examine Nikola Tesla in a manner that has yet to be accomplished in publishing history-asking and answering the seminal question: Who was the real man with an extremely complex psyche/personality, who lived with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and a hyperthymic temperament spilling over at times into high flying bipolar mania and then crashing into devastating depression-and not simply the iconoclastic scientist who invented the modern world?"-- Provided by publisher.
