Bob Willis' top ten reference books 2004
Keywords: Electrical engineering, Books
Here is a new list of “Bob Willis' Top Ten” reference books that has been updated for 2004 to take into account recent changes in technology. In the publishing industry there are many charts and awards for the best selling books, but with sales in the tens and hundreds, not thousands, it would be impossible to have a sales chart for technology handbooks. There are only two changes to the top ten this year, there were two others I wanted to add but Top Ten is not top 12!
This list does not indicate the number of sales of any one title, the age or up-to-date nature of the text, only my opinion on the “must have” engineering titles for your office bookshelf. Remember: generally no new problems in manufacture exist; most have been seen before by someone. Good reading until next year and keep up to date with new titles at the Web site: www.smartgroup.org
