5Great for the beginner or experiencedAug 18, 2001
By Dennis Cody
I have been an Avionics Tech. for 30 years and bought this book for my son-in-law. I have had a copy and used it for years to brush up on sometimes forgoten electrical principals. This book is so good that the aircraft technical schools issue it to aviation mechanics for the AC and DC basics. If you want to understand electricity, motors, generators, AC/DC theory...This book is for you!!!!!

5Get the other Electronics books too !Jan 29, 2011
By Ronco
I'm an ex submariner and a former 1st class Electronics technician. I went through both ET "A" and ET "B" school at the Naval training center at the Great Lakes base in Illinois. If you want to study and learn Electronics there are 3 books you need...this one Basic electricity ( you need to master this before you study the next 2 books which are "Basic electronics" ( this is virtually the identical material used in the Navy's 38 week ET "A" School and then the "Advanced electronics "book ( this one is the ET "B" school curriculum) I believe all 3 are available here at Amazon. The Navy did an incredibly good job with this material as it's core of their electronics schools which by the way, were taught by civilian electrical engineers from the staff of the university of Chicago's electrical engineering dept.
If you can master the material in these books you could easily stand toe to toe with any Electronics engineering college graduate anywhere

4From an Enlisted Sailor who knowsJun 02, 2000
By Tim Fredericksen Jr
This book is a fantastic reference guide to those interested in the field of Electricity. I found it extremely useful, both as a guideline for choosing my rating in the Navy's Nuclear Power Program, and as a basic reference guide in application. It is well thought out, and, laid out in a logical straight forward matter. This book, coupled with some basic knowledge of electricity, will give you a broad theoretical background in this fundamental subject.

5Theory Combined with Practical ApplicationsFeb 19, 2008
By c "Power Systems Engineer"
I have a degree in electrical engineering and is no stranger to text books on the subject of electrical circuits and power distribution. This book serves as an awesome guide that can compete with any book written on electric circuits. It also touches on three phase transformer configurations and ac/dc generators and motors.

As for the guy that claim this book is based on outdated methods of analysis and circuit components and devices, I strongly disagree. Transformers, Ac generators, DC generators and motors are used in the power industry as well as other industrial settings as of today and is not on the verge of becoming extinct no time soon.

To not understand the material is one thing, but to write a nasty review out lack of knowledge oncerning the subject is ridiculous. My opinion this is a great book.
