The book is quite dated but still serves as a very useful source for inductors, tables and formulas can be programmed with relative ease into software such as Excel or Matlab and such. The book provides little explanation as to how everything got derived, meaning its more of a cookbook rather than a textbook, so if you are looking for all the derivations, Maxwell equations and such, this may not be the book you are looking for, however if you are looking for a rather starightforward approach to calculate or design air core inductors then this book will be an extremely valuable addition to your library.
It must be said that this is not the most reader friendly book out there, it takes some patience to follow, but compared to the prices of the rest of the books on the same subject out there, this one is a real bargain
Grover's 1946 work (he was a physicist at National Bureau of Standards and later a professor at Union College) is the gold standard for calculating air core self inductance and mutual inductance for low frequencies. It does not provide absolute accuracy at "RF" frequencies as it can for lower frequency.
The author has calculated the self- & mutual inductance of common geometries. It is surprising for me that hoe he was able to calculate these geometries more that 50 years ago without any computation facility. This book can ease your work by finding the desired geometry inductance. During my reach I need to know the self-inductance of the square & circular ring with different thickness and this book supplied me enough. So, I managed to focus on my research without thinking about calculating inductance.
It is essentially a practical book; although many of the equations for inductance are complicated, there is little explanation of how the equations were derived. If that had been included, the book would have been about three times as long (and costly), and many would have been put off by the advanced math.
