Free Science & Engineering Books on Project Gutenberg

Astounding Stories of Super Science - RF CafeRF Cafe visitor Steve G. just sent me a link to the Project Gutenberg website where you can download copyright-free books and other material on a broad range of subjects. The particular page he sent me to is for books with "radio" in the subject. There are currently more than 44,000 titles from which to choose, and many of them are available in multiple file formats like HTML, Kindle, EPUB, and Plucker. Although most date back quite a few decades, there are more contemporary titles whose authors placed them in the public domain for free, legal access. If you are a fan of the Carl & Jerry adventure series from Popular Electronics, then you might enjoy The Radio Boys and Astounding Stories of Super Science. If you like historical books on technology, maybe Project Trinity 1945-1946 would be of interest; interestingly, the opening page of the book reads, "Destroy this report when it is no longer needed." A Brief Account of Radio-Activity - RF CafeAnother book written in 1922 by Western Electric employee John Mills titled Letters of a Radio-Engineer to His Son provides layman-level (with some detail) insight into the research behind early radio circuits and antennas, including studies of the human voice and ear and how they produce and detect sound, respectively. For historical data, how about a 1917 copy of A Brief Account of Radio-Activity, written in the Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin - RF Cafeera when researchers were willingly exposing their body parts to the mysterious atomic forces and suffering sometimes gruesome maladies because of it. If you want something more contemporary, try The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier, published in 1992. Relativity: The Special and General Theory, was written by none other than Albert Einstein himself! If you are not in the tech mood, then there are plenty of other topics available ranging from classics like Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, The Republic by Plato, and Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin. Enjoy!
