4-0 out of 5 stars Sensorics is a piezoelectric basics
Only having read about ten percent of this book so far, one might say that a review may need to wait. On the other hand I rarely see a technical book showing as much craft and wisdom that I have to write something immediately.

Mr. Gautschi has given us a text that primes us for both the technical aspects of the subject as well as the deeper, understandably hard-to-ferret-out details of the topic. I'd say it's anecdotal at times, but he's taken a typically dry subject and made it come to life by weaving historic, and at times obscure side notes to the discussions on his chosen subject.

The wisdom of the book is quite evident, and I appreciate this immensely.

The book also contains applications information that is a welcome departure from the steady grind, grind, grind of analytical proofs that only a molecule could appreciate.

Sure, there's that stuff, too. Yet this book combines a lot of information on the subject of piezoelectric devices and sensors to the point it is actually useful and meaningful as a stand alone reference.

Book Description

Since the time of its inception, the field of aviation has rapidly grown in both importance and popularity. The acceptance and recognition of women’s participation and achievements in this activity, however, did not develop with nearly the same speed.

The first biographical history of women pilots in Alaska, this work explores the challenges faced by women of Alaska as they pursued roles in aviation—something that had long been considered part of "the men’s world". Beginning in 1927 with Marvel Crosson and reaching to the present day, 37 adventurous and personal tales are offered, including that of an ultralight flyer, the first woman to become U.S. Aerobatic Champion, a parachute jumper, the first woman to fly in a small airplane over the North Pole and an Iditarod dog musher. Questions about why these women chose to fly; where they learned; when they soloed; what it meant to them to become a pilot; what challenges they faced in such a non-traditional role; and why they chose the skies of Alaska are addressed as these intriguing stories are told. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The book all aquatic chemists should keep on reading
Stumm and Morgan remains the best aquatic chemical book ever written.

It is fundamental in its approach to the processes that control the composition of natural waters, it is a pleasure to read and should be a must for any student and/or professional in the field.

After more than 20 years working in the field I still find it useful and up to date in many respects.

A pitty that there is no Spanish version of it, thousands of Spanish speaking chemists and geochemists are missing a classic.

3-0 out of 5 stars Reference Yes, Teaching Text, No
This book is an excellent reference text for people who already know something about aquatic chemistry. It contains more material and covers more topics than any other book in the field. As a teaching text, however, it is severely lacking.

The first problem is the often convoluted writing, which lapses at times into incomprehensibility; read this book for 5 minutes and you will find at least one confusing sentence or circular explanation. The second problem is the lack of clarity about how to actually solve equlibrium problems: there are lots of examples of tableaus used to solve problems, but the explanation of how the tableau is constructed is not good, and neither is the description of how to obtain the proton condition or what it is (and it is crucial to understand this). Finally, many so-called "examples" do very little to help clarify things. Readers who find the tableau method confusing as introduced by Stumm and Morgan will find themselves consulting the aquatic chemistry text by Morel (or the later edition by Hering and Morel) to learn how to actually use the method. When they do, they will probably find that text highly preferable: clearly written, with all the examples worked out from start to finish.

These problems really make learning from this text a monumental struggle for students not already versed in the subject. However, as previously noted, as a reference for professionals, it is unequaled.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book for chem. & physics of nat. systems
This book is an excellent reference. It presents a thorough discussion of a complex topic. The authors provide many worked examples, with all required numeric inputs and resutls, that permit the reader to quickly verify his or her understanding of the material. The consistent and proper use of units throughout the book is refreshing. ... Read more

Book Description

This book discusses the physics of mechanical vibrating systems, emphasizing normal modes of vibration. Beginning with the basics of free and forced motions of a simple harmonic oscillator (with electrical analogs indicated where appropriate), it goes on to discuss vibrations in one-dimensional systems, such as strings and bars, and two-dimensional systems, such as membranes and plates. The discussion of coupled systems includes strong as well as weak coupling and presents both mechanical and electrical examples. The treatment includes nonlinear systems and self-excited oscillators, as well as a brief explanation of modal analysis, including finite-element methods and modal testing. The concluding third of the book discusses the propagation of sound in air, including radiation, transmission, absorption, and diffraction. The treatment of radiation covers point, dipole, line, plane, and other sources, both with and without baffles. Propagation of sound in various kinds and shapes of pipes, horns and other acoustic components is discussed. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduates, the book provides the foundations needed to understand the acoustics of rooms and musical instruments as well as the basics for scientists and engineers interested in noise and vibration. The new edition will have new chapters on: transducers, room acoustics, atmosperic propagation, and noise. the other chapters will be brought up to date (incorporating all revisions made in the latest edition of 'THe Physics of Musical Instruments'). ...

5-0 out of 5 stars great for novice or review purposes - concise
both my 11 year old and myself have found this book to be a MUST for several reasons: It's clear, and covers the essential knots either a boater or knot-tying hobbiest could need. although the reader is sometimes subject to rely on what a photograph is indicating, the directions along with the photographs are fairly easy to follow. it's fabulous for a novice or if you need to review some forgotten "moves" - the authors make sure to briefly explain the usefulness and helpfulness of the knot. it's fun to work through this book with my daughter - so i recommend this as a unique parent/child activity we enjoy and can put to practical use. i recommend this if you are rusty on the correct way to tie trustworthy, safe nautical knots (in other words, your boat will still be at the dock in the morning.....)

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Summary of Important Knots and Seamanship
Art and Paul Snyder have updated their excellent book on nautical knots, originally published over thirty years ago. The book is not meant to be exhaustive or comprehensive, but offers the right level of detail and a listing of the most useful knots the salty sailor needs to master. A step-by-step approach with clear instructions and photographs makes it easy to learn new knots and other aspects of marlinspike and general seamanship. A must to keep on board. ... Read more
