Thank you for your purchase of The Nikola Tesla CD-ROM. I have tried to compile a broad range of information and media related to Nikola Tesla and hope that you find it a useful reference. The highlights of this collection are the complete text of a book about Tesla and a second work purported to be his Biography. The court records from the 1939 Marconi vs. Tesla case are in .txt format and you will find the FBI files in .txt and in .pdf formats interesting. You will also find articles on this cd about individual inventions as well as instructions for building some of Tesla's popular inventions.
If you decide to build anything involving electronics please be very careful and realize that the life you save will probably be your own!
