The Science of Radio explains the working and charts the development of the ordinary AM radio receiver, which has become an integral part of our lives in the 80 years since its invention. As well as showing the reader the growth of technology in this century, the story of AM radio can provide a unique insight into the basics of electrical engineering, making the primary co ...more

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.

This book has a lot of mathematics and analysis (I had expected more Matlab code solutions) that is really hard to follow in some pages, but the anecdotes in the history of AM radio and the Technically Appendix about a lot of mathematics that an electrical engineer has to learn, resumed 3 University years in 80 pages, worth it. Nahin is a technical writer so you can expect this kind of scientific deepening in his books.

I read this, not the mat lab one, oops. Nahin is very knowledgeable, but I find him dry.
