Quick & Basic Electricity
by Carol Fey
Never judge a book by its size. This one is just 80 pages long, but within those 80 pages Carol Fey manages to explain electricity in a way that's not only understandable, but also fun! She's a master at putting the spoken word into print (you'll feel as if she's right there in the room with you). Here you will find some of the best, and most visual analogies, I've ever read in a technical book. She actually uses the example of two guys fishing for trout to explain how a double-pole, double-throw switch works. This is such great stuff!
My friend Mark Eatherton (Mark writes the Hydronics column in Contractor magazine) gave a copy of Carol's book to his young technician. He told me the guy read it once and immediately began to understand what he was doing in the field of controls. "It's a great confidence builder," Mark said. "And it can open the eyes of some of the most experienced technicians, too." I couldn't agree more.
Carol Fey has worked in the Controls industry for more than 20 years. She has been named National Technical Trainer of the Year by the American Society of Training and Development, and she writes beautifully. If you add a copy of this book to your library, I guarantee you will not be sorry.
