This book has excellent detail. It goes as far as to start with how electricity itself works at the atomic level, right down to electrons, without ever feeling overwhelming or overcomplicated. Very well written. The chapter by chapter tests are followed by a final exam, making this an ideal teaching tool. I highly recommend this book.
