On the positive side of the battery you got a bunch of Greenie chicks. And, I mean some of those chicks are very positive ;)
On the negative side, you got some Greenie dudes. Those chicks, they buy a couple of kegs and turn up their little boom boxes. Us guys, we hear the music, and right away we feel that need to party. The more chicks there are, the more little boom boxes they got which makes the music loud. That means more dudes hear it and feel that need to party.So we find a road and cruise down to the positive side to party. Voltage is that need to party, its the reason we go. It's our thirst for brew, the big itch that must be scratched. You call it voltage we call it need to party."
I could not understand what voltage is till I read this. I have read several books watched several videos over the ears to understand these simple concepts of electricity but all those efforts went in vain. I have found all those books and materials to be very boring and unhelpful, they start with some simple concept but very quickly dive into formulas and more formulas. Then I found this book, It blew my mind away. I could not believe someone could teach electricity with a fairy tale like story. Kenn should be given a noble price in scientific education.
If you are like me who want to learn the concepts of electricity but cannot understand the usual text books then you should definitely give this a try. But let me warn you, don't get lost in the fairy tale story. Now I don't think that this book can replace all other text books but I do think that this style of teaching is very important. It keeps the audience engaged especially when they are kids. Kids hate formulas and complicated jargon, trust me, we all have been there. I think what this book did was to bring back my interest in electronics like no other book did. This is the first book on electronics that I have read multiple times in my life and yet I find it as interesting every time I read as I found it the first time.
I have always been interested in building electronic circuits but could never do so as I could never understand the basic concepts of electricity. I don't think I understand it even now, but this book has diverted my interested from building circuits to actually understanding electronics and more importantly not by reading a book but by reasoning. I do not know why I cannot understand electronics like some other people do using regular text books. I guess because Kenn is right, no one really understands electricity. But they don't want to admit. Below is one of my favourite part in the book, it posed a question I never got in my mind.
"If the negative terminals of the battery have too few electrons and positive end has too many of them and opposites attract then why can't I hook up a wire between negative end of one battery and positive end of another battery and get any current?"
Apart from explaining some of the simple concepts of electricity what this book also does is bring back the scientist in us which had died in our child hood because of the style of education we received in our school. So rather than just reading books and believing what ever book says we start wondering like a child to try to find the answers.
People say arts and science don't mix. Well this book proves them wrong. This is a book on science which is written very creatively and artistically and very simple to understand. It's not just science, its very humane.
I think this book should be taken as an inspiration and an example of creating our next generation of education system.
You will not be an electronics expert after reading this, but you'll have the basics that seem to be skipped over in other books.
A lot of times why you 'll find in beginner book is that the author will start off all nice and easy, and then forget their target audience and get all esoteric. Won't happen here.
I was disappointed that the use of transistors in some basic circuits was not covered. I would like to see a book by Kenn Amdahl author describing how electronic amplifiers work in greater detail.. maybe as a book II to this one.
Also I still don't get why electrons/greenies don't flow when the negative terminal of one battery is wired to the positive terminal of another. I thought that would become clear by the end of the book maybe I missed that along where the wizard hid the 10,000
