one of the difficult books of power electronics,don't try to start with this books as a beginner.
Language is very much complicated and explanation is not simplified.
Bunch of information is there
but of no use if u are trying to understand power electronics from the basics.
If u r more of a mug up person than understanding the basics,then u can have it.
