Synopsis

Learn electricity at your own pace. What makes a light bulb work? What overloads a fuse? How does a magnetic field differ from an electrical field? With "Electricity: A Self-Teaching Guide", you'll discover the answers to these questions and many more about this powerful, versatile force that everyone uses, yet most of us don't understand. Ralph Morrison demystifies electricity, taking you through the basics step by step. Significantly updated to cover the latest in electrical technology, this easy-to-use guide makes familiar the workings of voltage, current, resistance, power, and other circuit values.You'll discover where electricity comes from, how electric fields cause current to flow, how we harness its tremendous power, and how best to avoid the various pitfalls in many practical applications when the time comes for you to put your knowledge to work. The clearly structured format of Electricity makes it fully accessible, providing an easily understood, comprehensive overview for everyone from the student to the engineer to the hobbyist. Like all "Self-Teaching Guides", "Electricity" allows you to build gradually on what you have learned - at your own pace.

Questions and self-tests reinforce the information in each chapter and allow you to skip ahead or focus on specific areas of concern. Packed with useful, up-to-date information, this clear, concise volume is a valuable learning tool and reference source for anyone who wants to improve his or her understanding of basic electricity.

One must be wrong before he is right. . . 18. Oktober 2003
Von Aaron C. Earl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I just began reading this book, reviewing some of the things I learned way back in High School in the '70s. I selected this one of several popular "coffee-table" texts, because, at a glance, it appeared to be really focused on the physics behind electricity.
When I reached page 13, however, I was thoroughly amazed to find that Ralph Morrison, who is supposed to be this hot-shot electronics engineer, has made some very serious errors in his presentation. For instance, he incorrectly identifies the unit of force in the metric system as the kilogram. Now, we all understand that unit to denote mass. The unit of force in the metric system (which high-scool Physics texts call the "MKS system," as opposed to the "CGS system," also metric, but useful for denoting smaller quantities) is, actually, the Newton. He then uses this bit of bad Physics to make more, by deriving the dimensions of the Joule as "kilogram-meters." Where he does make mention of "mass" and "acceleration" in his example about the work done lifting a body in a gravitational field, he supplies the variables "m" and "g" but, they are dimensionless. These are the same sorts of mistakes that beginning students make when they fail to understand that "weight" is a FORCE, not a measurement of mass. The weight of, say a brick, is not measured in kilograms. It's measured in Newtons.
These errors are absolutely critical when they appear in any discussion of field theory.
Because I do remember somthing about High-School Physics, I have been able to read this text and understand what the author is driving at; I have been able to accomplish this only by second-guessing the text at each step. I don't believe that a true beginner to this subject would be so lucky.

Wonderful book 6. August 2004
Von Robert Hotto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is a refreshing perspective for looking at elementary electronics from first principles.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to solidify their knowledge of electronics.

It is clear and very readable.

The previous reviewer points out that there are mistakes in the book. This is usual for new books and is a reason for the publisher to provide the corrections on a dedicated web page, like several computer book publishers such as Microsoft do.

I take my hat off to Ralph Morrison for a wonderful book.
Nice and easy to understand 22. Juni 2014
Von Gabi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
If you wish to show your curious (really?) grand child how electricity and electronics work use this book. You have a fair chance to teach the young cub without boring the trapped child to death. The material doesn't require mastery of heavy mathematics. The schemes are simple and clear, The experiments can be performed with no excessive preparation time and effort. You need some testing hardware a few basic tools and some components. If you don't own them already, buy. These aren't expensive. It's good to have them at home any way.

If your student is too young skip the definitions simplify and shorten explanations. Go straight to the experiments. To a more grown better learnt student read and add your interpretations to the books contents. If your student can and agrees to read the book you are lucky. In such case you both were invited to a party all pure fun and thrill. Lean back and answer questions from time to time. Your help with the experiments will be needed most probably.

If your student grand child happens to be a real student. Meaning an electronics engineering student at any kind of university or technical academy institute, Sorry. The book is under qualified. Read the book for yourself or try with your grand grand child.
Wrong so often it is sad. 24. Februar 2013
Von J. Singer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I can't seem to get through this book because on almost every page there is something that is either badly written and vague to the point that I can't figure out what exactly Morrison is saying, or there is something that is absolutely wrong. So many of his example formulas and sample questions are just wrong. Try to follow his math, he doesn't show steps correctly, and if you end up with a different result you will never know why. One third through the book and I just don't trust it anymore. I'm picking up something else so I don't learn things wrong.
good for beginners 10. Januar 2009
Von Bryan Lorrett - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A good book for beginners. A word of caution is necessary though, there are many mistakes in the end of the chapter self tests.
