First published October 1968, Reprinted (with Revision Questions), April 1976. From the cover: “Electricity Made Simple gives the reader a knowledge of the fundamental principles underlying every aspect of the subject. It is particularly valuable as a background course for the student who intends to continue his studies to a professional level, either into electrical engineering or electronics. For the enterprising lay student who wants to make use of this knowledge at home—in the understanding of domestic appliances, for instance —the book will give all the answers and more. It will also enable the intelligent parent to keep abreast of his children’s school work or to revise his own forgotten knowledge. The book goes well beyond the requirements of G.C.E. O-level and much of it will apply to post-O.N.C. students too. Each aspect of electricity is considered from its basic ideas and a large number of worked examples help the reader to assimilate the topic under discussion. Where the text deals with more technical material, that, for instance, concerning alternating-current theory in the second half of the book, the student will be helped by the glossary of terms at the end. The rationalized M.K.S. system of units is employed, but parallel examples of the C.G.S. system are included for the benefit of readers who used this latter system at school.”
