This is a good book providing an exemplar of how engineering and science should be learned. Through the context of a technology that everyone is familiar with as a user, Nahin explains the physics and math behind the operation of the AM radio. The math is not hairy, and the writing style is conversational and clear. Highly recommended for those interested in radio, or anyone interested in studying a good example of how to educate the next generation of scientists and engineers.
