"This is an outstanding book. At 872 pages thick, it is a valuable follow-up to Ott's earlier books, Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems (first edition, 1975; second edition, 1987) . . . EMC will remain with us in the foreseeable future, and we need books like this one." (The Radio Science Bulletin, 1 June 2011)
From the Back Cover
Praise for Noise Reduction Techniques IN electronic systems
"Henry Ott has literally 'written the book' on the subject of EMC. . . . He not only knows the subject, but has the rare ability to communicate that knowledge to others."
Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering is a completely revised, expanded, and updated version of Henry Ott's popular book Noise Reduction Techniques in Electronic Systems. It reflects the most recent developments in the field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and noise reduction?and their practical applications to the design of analog and digital circuits in computer, home entertainment, medical, telecom, industrial process control, and automotive equipment, as well as military and aerospace systems.
While maintaining and updating the core information—such as cabling, grounding, filtering, shielding, digital circuit grounding and layout, and ESD—that made the previous book such a wide success, this new book includes additional coverage of:
Switching power supplies and variable-speed motor drives
Digital circuit power distribution and decoupling
PCB layout and stack-up
Mixed-signal PCB layout
RF and transient immunity
Power line disturbances
Precompliance EMC measurements
New appendices on dipole antennae, the theory of partial inductance, and the ten most common EMC problems
The concepts presented are applicable to analog and digital circuits operating from below audio frequencies to those in the GHz range. Throughout the book, an emphasis is placed on cost-effective EMC designs, with the amount and complexity of mathematics kept to the strictest minimum.
Complemented with over 250 problems with answers, Electromagnetic Compatibility Engineering equips readers with the knowledge needed to design electronic equipment that is compatible with the electromagnetic environment and compliant with national and international EMC regulations. It is an essential resource for practicing engineers who face EMC and regulatory compliance issues and an ideal textbook for EE courses at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels.

Combine this with a good text on Signal Integrity and you have one hell of a foundation for electrical engineering.
Many of the earlier chapters have significant updates, and there are lots of other new topics, analog and digital designs and printed circuit board layout issues, as well as updated information on EMC regulations. A section on mains power focuses on North American practice.
There's also the very useful development of an equation for partial inductance -- that is, the inductance of a conductor "in free space" that does not form a loop, which is then reconciled with equations for loops by applying the partial treatment to each element of the loop. This is quite helpful in understanding fundamental practical applications like the inductance of a
length of wire in a grounding path. The only other place I've seen an equation to cover this problem is in Terman's 1943 book. Ott's and Terman's equations are a bit different, but provide results that are within 5% of each other for practical problems. A friend recently reminded me that Clayton Paul's excellent book also covers this concept.
No surprise -- Henry's analysis is always spot on and his writing style easy to follow. He never "hides behind the math, but there's enough to allow quantification of each principle being discussed. This book ought to be on the bookshelf of every EE, no matter the discipline.
