Newnes Radio and Electronics Engineer’s Pocket Book, 17th edition covers the needs of most people interested in radio and electronics related areas, while making it easy to locate the required information.
The book starts by providing a list of abbreviations and symbols. The selection then provides illustrations and some explanations on several topics such as amateur bands in the UK, basic logic symbols and truth tables, batteries and cells, BBC AM, VHF/FM, and VHF test radio stations. The book also includes some information on the Beaufort scale, block diagram symbols, bridge rectifier data, bridge rectifier encapsulations, and broadcasting bands. Cables, calculus, characteristics of world television systems, and CMOS data and input are also demonstrated. Other presented data are the decimal table, electric quantities, Fahrenheit conversion table, radio emissions, and semiconductor glossary and labeling.
The text will be invaluable to electronics engineers.

Keith is a freelance journalist whose whole life (well, apart from the wife, the kids, the music and the mountain bike) is computers. He's been writing about them (computers, that is) for over 18 years, in the meantime working as a teacher, lecturer, engineer, journalist and finally (for the last 12 years) freelance in the computing field. He fondly remembers his first contacts with the Commodore Pet, the various Sinclair oddities, the BBC, PC-DOS, MS-DOS, the Mac, and the various incarnations of Windows. He dreams of new software and hardware, he realises that writing about computers makes little compared to making computers or writing the software for them, he is fully committed to passing his experience along to and making computer-life easier for his readers, yet still enjoys what he's doing. Which can't be all bad!
