I usually find the heavier and longer textbooks dry and boring. The information seems to run together and I tend to glaze over. However, Electricity DeMystified was concise and the concepts were presented simply and in plain language. The easy to grasp explanations were backed up with tables and figures that clarified things even more. I'll be keeping this one to refer to again and again.
