This book is well worth the investment for anyone involved with the electrical and instrumentation field. It has great graphics and illustrations that do a good job of explaining things in layman's terms. I found that it was an easier read than a compareable book that I bought covering the same subject matter. It is a great reference tool that I plan on keeping at the ready.
