9780071439251: Electricity Demystified

Electricity is a strong topic for McGraw-Hill, as seen with our tremendous sales figures with the TAB list. The books sell well across nearly every channel, and are extremely well received internationally. "Electricity Demystified" is a self-teaching guide intended for anybody who wants to get familiar with the basic concepts of electricity, be it for a course, professional, or personal reasons. It is a pre-cursor to our much more in-depth title, "Teach Yourself Electricity and Electronics", one of McGraw-Hill's most successful TAB titles, also by Stan Gibilisco.
