Overview

Author Ned Mohan has been a leader in EES education and research for decades. His three-book series on Power Electronics focuses on three essential topics in the power sequence based on applications relevant to this age of sustainable energy such as wind turbines and hybrid electric vehicles. The three topics include power electronics, power systems and electric machines.

Key features in the first Edition build on Mohan's successful MNPERE texts; his systems approach which puts dry technical detail in the context of applications; and substantial pedagogical support including PPT's, video clips, animations, clicker questions and a lab manual. It follows a top-down systems-level approach to power electronics to highlight interrelationships between these sub-fields. It's intended to cover fundamental and practical design. This book also follows a building-block approach to power electronics that allows an in-depth discussion of several important topics that are usually left. Topics are carefully sequenced to maintain continuity and interest.

The Human Body Book 4.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 22 reviews.

The book is amazingly well organized and contains superb visual aids. I'm giving 5 stars because everybody will be able to understand it. A must for the general reader who wants to be aware of the fundamentals of the human body.

When my young son started asking very detailed questions about female reproduction and was no longer satisfied with my answers, I decided it was time to introduce him to the anatomy of the human body. Children's books aimed to answer the infamous: "where do babies come from?", were no longer of interest to him. He really wanted to know how they grew in a body, and most importantly how they came out. He needed a book that provided realistic pictures to guide him through this journey. Not just about where babies come from but it was time to demystify the human body itself. Although he is a great reader...a picture is still worth a thousand words. DK does a great job blending visuals with concise text. So, from the reproductive system to the digestive system, skeletal and muscular systems and beyond... he has a reference book that will serve him well. We have not even hit the interactive DVD...A must have for every family's bookshelf!

IS a good anatomy book for beginners and also includes stuff about common diseases and disorders in the areas, great for reference and for the common person, but would not suggest as a reference to a MD or DO

I bought this book as a gift for a friend who is finishing her Masters in Physical Therapy and she said the book is wonderful and helpful! I browsed through it and wanted it for myself! It is easy to understand and the pictures are terrific!

As a massage therapy student I've been looking for a comprehensive and interesting book to help me get the gist of anatomy. This book has proven to be very helpful. It has many color images that make the reading easy to follow. The resolution of the images makes it a delight to look it.

I highly recommend it to students and anybody interested in knowing a little bit more about how the body functions.

"The Human Body Book" is a great book for students. The book mirrors the "Body Works" exhibit that is being displayed in many cities throughout the US. My grandson was so impressed with the exhibit and found the book to be extremely helpful with his study of the human body.
