|My Inventions: The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla
Lowest new price: $5.03
Lowest used price: $5.62
List price: $7.00
Author: Nikola Tesla
Serbian inventor NIKOLA TESLA (1857-1943) was a revolutionary scientist who forever changed the scientific fields of electricity and magnetism. Tesla's greatest invention, A/C current, powers almost all of the technological wonders in the world today, from home heating to computers to high-tech robotics. His discoveries gave mankind the television. And his dream of wireless communication came to pass in both the radio and eventually the cell phone. Yet his story remains widely unknown. History buffs, science enthusiasts, backyard inventors, and anyone who has ever dared to dream big will find the life of Nikola Tesla, written in his own words, engaging, informative, and humorous in its eccentricity.
|Classical Electrodynamics Third Edition
Lowest new price: $50.88
Lowest used price: $46.00
Author: John David Jackson

Lowest new price: $64.70
Lowest used price: $66.65
List price: $85.00
Author: Andrew Zangwill
An engaging writing style and a strong focus on the physics make this comprehensive, graduate-level textbook unique among existing classical electromagnetism textbooks. Charged particles in vacuum and the electrodynamics of continuous media are given equal attention in discussions of electrostatics, magnetostatics, quasistatics, conservation laws, wave propagation, radiation, scattering, special relativity, and field theory. Extensive use of qualitative arguments similar to those used by working physicists makes Modern Electrodynamics a must-have for every student of this subject. In 24 chapters, the textbook covers many more topics than can be presented in a typical two-semester course, making it easy for instructors to tailor courses to their specific needs. Close to 120 worked examples and 80 applications boxes help the reader build physical intuition and develop technical skill. Nearly 600 end-of-chapter homework problems encourage students to engage actively with the material. A solutions manual is available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/Zangwill.
"An outstanding achievement on so many levels, including scope, depth, insight, pedagogy, and historical background. It will become an instant classic."
JOHN D. JOANNOPOULOS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Zangwill's recreation of classical electromagnetic theory will surely become the standard text on the subject. His comprehensive and scholarly treatment clarifies subtle points that are often ignored or concealed."
SIR MICHAEL BERRY, University of Bristol
"I am happy to recommend this book. It is carefully and creatively organized, clearly written, and has many, many interesting problems to solve."
GERALD A. MILLER, University of Washington
"This book richly deserves the word "modern" in its title. Zangwill develops an intuitive picture of electrodynamics that will be a great resource for all."
ROB PHILLIPS, California Institute of Technology
"I am impressed by the careful and thorough way this book addresses subtle questions like the behavior of electromagnetic fields in dielectric matter. It will be an essential resource for both researchers and teachers who are not willing to sweep this and other delicate issues under the rug."
ALAIN ASPECT, Institut d'Optique and Ecole Polytechnique
"Zangwill has written an excellent graduate textbook, with a large number of carefully chosen problems and examples. Boxes describing interesting and quirky applications add color to the presentation and references to quantum mechanics and modern topics will surely engage students."
R. MERLIN, University of Michigan
"This comprehensive textbook gives refreshing insights into classical electrodynamics, with emphasis on the physics without sacrificing mathematical rigor. I particularly like the numerous worked examples and sections on applications, which show the relevance of the topics to modern research. The problems, with comprehensive solutions for the busy instructor, will be excellent for students to get to grips with the material."

|Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age
Lowest new price: $19.00
Lowest used price: $19.00
List price: $29.95
Author: W. Bernard Carlson
Nikola Tesla was a major contributor to the electrical revolution that transformed daily life at the turn of the twentieth century. His inventions, patents, and theoretical work formed the basis of modern AC electricity, and contributed to the development of radio and television. Like his competitor Thomas Edison, Tesla was one of America's first celebrity scientists, enjoying the company of New York high society and dazzling the likes of Mark Twain with his electrical demonstrations. An astute self-promoter and gifted showman, he cultivated a public image of the eccentric genius. Even at the end of his life when he was living in poverty, Tesla still attracted reporters to his annual birthday interview, regaling them with claims that he had invented a particle-beam weapon capable of bringing down enemy aircraft.
Plenty of biographies glamorize Tesla and his eccentricities, but until now none has carefully examined what, how, and why he invented. In this groundbreaking book, W. Bernard Carlson demystifies the legendary inventor, placing him within the cultural and technological context of his time, and focusing on his inventions themselves as well as the creation and maintenance of his celebrity. Drawing on original documents from Tesla's private and public life, Carlson shows how he was an "idealist" inventor who sought the perfect experimental realization of a great idea or principle, and who skillfully sold his inventions to the public through mythmaking and illusion.
This major biography sheds new light on Tesla's visionary approach to invention and the business strategies behind his most important technological breakthroughs.
