1. The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life
Author: by Arthur Firstenberg
Published at: Chelsea Green Publishing; Illustrated edition (March 9, 2020)
50,000 copies sold!Cell towers, Wi-fi, 5G: Electricity has shaped the modern world. But how has it affected our health and environment? Over the last 220 years, society has evolved a universal belief that electricity is safe’ for humanity and the planet.
Scientist and journalist Arthur Firstenberg disrupts this conviction by telling the story of electricity in a way it has never been told beforefrom an environmental point of viewby detailing the effects that this fundamental societal building block has had on our health and our planet.
In The Invisible Rainbow, Firstenberg traces the history of electricity from the early eighteenth century to the present, making a compelling case that many environmental problems, as well as the major diseases of industrialized civilizationheart disease, diabetes, and cancerare related to electrical pollution.

3. The Body Electric: Electromagnetism And The Foundation Of Life
Author: by Robert Becker
Published at: William Morrow Paperbacks; 1st edition (July 22, 1998)
The Body Electric tells the fascinating story of our bioelectric selves.Robert O. Becker, a pioneer in the filed of regeneration and its relationship to electrical currents in living things, challenges the established mechanistic understanding of the body. He found clues to the healing process in the long-discarded theory that electricity is vital to life.
But as exciting as Becker’s discoveries are, pointing to the day when human limbs, spinal cords, and organs may be regenerated after they have been damaged, equally fascinating is the story of Becker’s struggle to do such original work. The Body Electric explores new pathways in our understanding of evolution, acupuncture, psychic phenomena, and healing.

5. The Grid: The Fraying Wires Between Americans and Our Energy Future
Author: by Gretchen Bakke
Published at: Bloomsbury USA; Reprint edition (July 11, 2017)
A revelatory look at our national power grid-how it developed, its current flaws, and how it must be completely reimagined for our fast-approaching energy future. America’s electrical grid, an engineering triumph of the twentieth century, is turning out to be a poor fit for the present.
It’s not just that the grid has grown old and is now in dire need of basic repair. Today, as we invest great hope in new energy sources-solar, wind, and other alternatives-the grid is what stands most firmly in the way of a brighter energy future.
If we hope to realize this future, we need to reimagine the grid according to twenty-first-century values. It’s a project which forces visionaries to work with bureaucrats, legislators with storm-flattened communities, moneymen with hippies, and the left with the right.
And though it might not yet be obvious, this revolution is already well under way. Cultural anthropologist Gretchen Bakke unveils the many facets of America’s energy infrastructure, its most dynamic moments and its most stable ones, and its essential role in personal and national life.

8. My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla
Author: by Nikola Tesla
Published at: Martino Fine Books (October 4, 2018)
2018 Reprint of 1919 Edition. Nikola Tesla (18561943) was a prophet of the electronic age. His research laid much of the groundwork for modern electrical and communication systems, and his impressive accomplishments include development of the alternating-current electrical system, radio, the Tesla coil transformer, wireless transmission, and fluorescent lighting.
Tesla’s research was so groundbreaking that many of his contemporaries failed to understand it, and other scientists are unjustly credited for his innovations. The visionary scientist speaks for himself in this volume, originally published in 1919 as a six-part series in Electrical Experimenter magazine.
Tesla recounts his boyhood in Croatia, his schooling and work in Europe, his collaboration with Thomas Edison, and his subsequent research. Written with wit and lan, this memoir offers fascinating insights into one of the great minds of modern science.
Chapters include: My Early Life; My First Efforts In Inventions; My Later Endeavors: The Discovery of the Rotating Magnetic Field and The Discovery of the Tesla Coil and Transformer; The Magnifying Transmitter; The Art of Telautomatics.

10. Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla: Biography of a Genius
Author: by Marc Seifer
Published at: Citadel; Reprint edition (August 30, 2016)
The story of one of the most prolific, independent, and iconoclastic inventors of this century …Fascinating. Scientific AmericanNikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology.
Among Tesla’s creations were the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy, and the giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls. This essential biography is illustrated with sixteen pages of photographs, including the July 20, 1931, Time magazine cover for an issue celebrating the inventor’s career.
Wizard is a truly remarkable biography of a remarkable man. The expression ahead of his time’ is used too loosely and too often today but in the case of Nikola Tesla ahead of his time’ barely describes the genius of this man.

15. The Problem of Increasing Human Energy: With Special Reference to the Harnessing of the Sun's Energy
Author: by Nikola Tesla
Published at: Cosimo Classics (January 1, 2008)
Part philosophical ponderings on humanity’s relationship to the universe, part scientific extrapolation on what technological advancement might bring to that understanding, this long essay, first published in Century Illustrated Magazine in June 1900, is yet another example of the genius of Serbian inventor NIKOLA TESLA (1857-1943), the revolutionary scientist who forever changed the scientific fields of electricity and magnetism.
From the possibilities presented by robotics to the “civilizing potency of aluminum,” from a “self-acting engine” to one of the first proposals to use solar power to run industrial civilization, and much more, this is a wide-ranging but illuminating look into the thoughts of an unsung hero of scientific philosophy.
