    Hey Everyone,

    It’s not everyday that I hear new stories about Nikola Tesla (not that I pretend to be an authority on the subject matter). This one came to me via Aaron Murakami’s newsletter for the upcoming Energy Conference. It mentioned the release of a book called The Battle for Wardenclyffe: A Story in Letters by Ernst Willem van den Bergh (Dec 2018).

    Its apparently a collaborative community effort gathered from Tesla & JP Morgan’s correspondances that were kept on a microfilm, and that’s now published in a book.

    I’m guessing we’re all familiar with the story of how Tesla was given funding for his Wardenclyffe Tower, aka Global Wireless System, that was eventually pulled out from him, making him bankrupt, and the rest is history. But apparently there’s more to it in this book.

    I havent read it, but if anyone feels like giving it a try, it’d be great to hear. Unfortunately, its seems to be only available in paperback.
    Still, quite amazing that were still finding new archive materials from that era, about these legends!

    PS: I shoul probably mention that the author is also an engineer who’s apparently working on a magnifying transmitter himself. So quite interesting!
