Dictionary of electrical engineering terms. Quite an interesting document though it was written in 1892 (as mentioned in the book before the discovery of the proton). Good on a historical level but otherwise it is obsolete.

HALL OF FAMEon September 30, 2014
This dictionary has some very important scientific
definitions like absolute temperature, absorption
and acoustic telegraphy. There are extensive
explanations of the concepts with relevant examples.

For instance, an acidometer is defined as a hydrometer
used to determine the specific gravity of an acid. This
volume would be useful as a supplemental reference book
for students and even practicing engineers. The presentation
would be more useful as a history of engineering text.

The author needs to do some reformatting of the
book because the contents are not presented in a
uniform manner for ease of reading. Otherwise, the
book has quite a number of interesting definitions of
classic engineering terms with plenty of examples!

Exactly as stated, nothing is really missing from this book that I could think of. I like having it on my phone so I can manually search for words.

This book contains useful information and it is available for free from Amazon. The prudent person would be wise to store up as much of this information as possible while it is readily available at no cost.
