There are many facts about Nikola Tesla that've never been released to the world,nor will they be.<br />Still , this book is going to change your perception of this realm,as i've changed mine ,when i discovered who Tesla really was,and what were his real intentions.<br />All that ,through fictional character Petar, Russian naval officer and a spy,who's trying to figure out connections between Nikola Tesla , WW2 , Nazis , and experiments that led to making of Atomic bomb,Internet,death rays,and pretty much every other advanced technological invention.<br />You must prepare before read "Dialogue with Tesla " by asking yourself questions like:<br />" What is time"<br />"what's real nature of energy and matter"<br />"How do we get here"<br />"What is free will"<br />Room 3327 is the "New Yorker" hotel's room,where Tesla stayed to the rest of his life , but in this book you'll be traveling everywhere,but it'd be really important to forget what time is for the moment.<br /><br />If you want to discuss about the book,or if you want to ask me anything,write me to my email address :<br />kurjakcina@hotmail.com<br /><br />

Впервые издана в 1893 году в серии «Жизнь замечательных людей», выпускавшейся в 1890—1917, а также в 1922, 1924 годах издательством Ф. Ф. Павленкова. «Чтобы быть великим, надо быть оригинальным. Был ли таким Грозный в своей государственной деятельности? Разумеется, вся наша биография должна служить ответом на этот вопрос. Но является возможность в самом начале подготовить его разрешение. Для этого прежде всего необходимо определить традиции Московского государства, а затем уже сам читатель легко увидит, как далеко отошел от них Грозный и что нового внес он в жизнь».

It is said that nobody remembers those who finish second. But somehow, somewhere fate brings certain heroes to life. Enclosed within is the struggles and laurels of one such athlete. He led a life dominated by running...running...running. He was just a village boy whose mother died at childbirth and whose father died in her memories. This young man recruited himself in the Army at a young age and became an athlete by default. And what followed is the stuff legends are made of. Makhan Singh. The name might not sound familiar. In fact one or two in a hundred, may have heard his name. And yet, he was called the legend on the tracks. This book is a biography of Makhan Singh, who was called the king of the racing path. But he is forgotten by all and the respect which he and his family deserved is still due. The book shows the untold chapters of his lifespan and make people know about his name,achievements, laurels which he won for the country. Its a treasure of motivational and inspirational journey. Everyone out there will surely love the book am sure.

It was the 10th September, 1798. Napper Tandy was afloat, which he hated. She was a corvette. Her name was the Anacréon. What a name for a bloody ship-of-war, he thought. Whether she was named after a Greek composer of drinking and love songs or a French composer of operas, it was not a name for a war-ship.<br /> She was fast, though, that he admitted. And well armed, this 100 ton corvette, with her fourteen four pounders and a pair of swivels, but her main protection was her speed. The fastest vessel in the Navy of France, they said, and with her yellow hull and new top masts she was any young officer’s dream command. But God, how she pitched. He clutched his hand to his mouth and made once more for the scuppers. What it was to be so old. He felt all of his 61 years today. After a while he felt sufficiently recovered to return to the ward-room, where he found Rey. General Rey. A real General this Rey, not a paper general like himself. Brigadier General Tandy! The thought amused him unreasonably, even though he understood the necessity. If he was caught he could claim to be a prisoner of war, and exchanged. Otherwise he could be condemned as a traitor, and hanged.<br /><br />So opens the Story of Napper Tandy. He was born in Dublin around 1740, the son of an ironmonger. He was Secretary of the Dublin branch of the United Irishmen which with Wolfe Tone he helped found and whom he then went on to represent in America for five years after they were proscribed in 1792. He played a central part in the mismanaged French ‘invasion’ of Ireland in 1798. He was the lynchpin in the events which led to the Peace of Amiens between England and France in October, 1801. He was sentenced to death by the English, but never executed, a fact which may well have denied him the martyrdom and fame which came to others like Wolfe Tone and Robert Emmett. He was a Brigadier General in the French Republican Army, and received both salary and pension as such until the day he died, August 24th.,1803, in Bordeaux. His name was Napper Tandy.
