RF Cafe Morse Code >Hear It<
Each week, I select a new book that is relevant to engineers, scientists, students, hobbyists or managers. Most of the time they are sold through Amazon (I earn a few pennies on each sale), but when possible, I present books that are available in an e-book format that can be downloaded for free. The latter are much less available. After all, most people like to be paid for their work, as I'm certain that you do, too.
Note: I just began archiving these picks in May of 2009, but they have been going on since about 2003.

Dilbert desk calendar? Side note: I recently checked into the cost for 'legally' posting Dilbert comics on
RF Cafe. A very polite lady told me her franchise charges $75 per comic for the use of 1 to 9, and a
bargain price of only $50 per use of 10 or more cartoons (other price breaks apply).
So, it won't be happening on RF Cafe anytime soon, but you can always read them

the Heavens: A 2,000-Year-Old Computer - and the Century-long Search to Discover Its Secrets, by Jo Marchant.
Discovered a century ago in an ancient Mediterranean shipwreck, the
Antikythera mechanism instantly attracted
scientific interest. It had gears, which was and remains unique among artifacts from Greco-Roman civilization.
So begins Marchant's mystery about the object, a tale that ends in triumph but not before inveigling individuals
who not only puzzled over the device but also became obsessively devoted to figuring it out. Tantalized by the
Antikythera mechanism, scholar Derek de Solla Price felt it was the clue with which he could...
