Electricity - The Magic Medium
Originally published by IEEE Canadian Region, © copyright 1985

Preface to 2000 Web/CD-ROM Reprint

As Dr. Wallace Read first stated in the preface to the 1985 edition, the electronic phenomenon continues to fascinate scientists, engineers and the general public.

"Electricity - The Magic Medium" was first published in 1985. As part of the Millennium Project, IEEE Canada, decided that this book merited being reprinted in a CD-ROM version.

The historical perspective of the original book still stands the test of time and makes for fascinating reading.
