The How and Why Wonder Book of Electronics
The How and Why Wonder Book of Electronics Author:Martin L. Keen About 50 (about 92 now! LOL) years ago, a famous British scientist observed that the work of physicists was practically completed. There wasnothing more to be discovered! Then slmost overnight, so it seemed, cam the discovery of radioactivity, a new idea about the nature of matter and energy. The atom, which had so nicely been "tucked into bed... more »," was roused for intensive study of suspected new particles and properties. The world of physics was once more alove with discovery.
How foolish it would seem now for a scientist to state that everything about ANY phase of science was completely understood, and nothing further could be learned. As a matter of fact,alsmost everyone accepts the astounding evidence that the amount of new knowledge is DOUBLING at least every ten years. Can you believe that by the time you grow up there iwll be at least twice the scientific knowledge as there is presently?
The "How and Why wonder Book of Electronics" is a sample of the new knowledge that scientists have accumulated in just one small part of the giant field of physics. X-r4ays, vacuum tubes, radio, TV, radar, transistors, communications satellites, are all examples of modern electronic divices. What improvements will be discovered within the next twenty years? If you ar ein step with the times, you know that the future holds possibilities that have not even been dreamed of today. For that is the way of man's ingenuity. that i the way of science.
So, as you read this book about electronics, you are preparing yourself not noly to understnad the "magic" of electrons, but you are laying the groundwork for speculation about new, as-yet-undiscovered, developments of the future.-Paul E. Blackwood
Nice condition, especially for its age! Faded red marker scribbled at bottom front. Can't erase it or it will take the color off the cover. Has $.38 stamped on center of front cover! LOL« less
