This book completely changed the way I viewed non-fiction writing. If you have even a passing interest in electricity or electronics, but never quite understood electron theory, this is the book for you. Read full review

Review: There Are No Electrons: Electronic for Earthlings

User Review  - Alex Peterson - Goodreads

It's a funny, relaxed explanation of electronics for people who aren't satisfied with the black-box treatment you get in science classes. I love the style, and it's simply a joy to read. Read full review
