“This is the third time I’ve purchased this book, if that says anything. First time was for myself, so I could better understand my telecom technician work. That one got loaned to someone who never returned it. The second was a gift for my brother who was starting a job in a similar field, who will not let me borrow it as he is still reading it. Now I need a copy to replace my original that was never returned, so I can better understand vehicle electrical systems.
I’ve read a lot of textbooks and other explanatory material on the internet, and it simply does not get better than this book. This book was written in a way that a country bumpkin from 1940 who couldn’t even pronounce ‘algebra’ can actually understand electricity, perform the calculations, and troubleshoot electrical systems. The explanations are complete yet simple, the illustrations are clear and sometimes comical, and rarely do I find myself dozing off while reading. The material is engaging and interesting enough that I just keep going and taking notes. A must buy for anyone who wants to self teach electricity.”
