THE author, who is managing editor of the well-known journal Electronics, is in an ideal position for observing the continuous and successful application of electronic devices to industry. Without the subtlety associated with the specialist and research worker, or even a professor, and taking a robust point of view, he has produced a well-balanced text covering ground which has indeed been covered before, but not in a way that a practising engineer can, and ought to, understand. Sufficient theory of electrons in vacuum and gas tubes is included to make the internal and external circuit phenomena of these intelligible. A large number of electronic problems serve to illustrate magnitudes and the possibility of practical use of controls.
