The BIOS Companion: The book that doesn't come with your motherboard

This is by far one of the most comprehensive bios resources I have ever encountered. As a practicing computer tech 10+ years at a boutique service, I pride myself on knowing all the tricks of bios entry, beep codes and overall manufacturer to manufacturer difference. I was truly humbled by this book. If your a computer tech that deals in a variety of machines, trust me you won't regret it.

Build Your Own Electric Vehicle

The first edition has saved me much heartache in my building a converted vehicle. I used the basic schematic for laying out the system (with slight modification, being I don't use a DC/DC charger for my 12VDC low volt system). As for the technical aspects, we as a 'modern tech society' I think too often that we must 'have it all handed to us' and sometimes an author realizes that people working with such tech, will have to research o...

Schaum's Outline of Digital Signal Processing

This text was recommended as a companion to Oppenheim's "Discrete Time Signal Processing" for a senior DSP filtering course. If your school is like mine, you sit in three hours of lecture a week, nodding and agreeing and feeling like DSP is straightforward and intuitive. Then you sit down to do your homework and wonder, "where did this come from?" Schaum's helps to bridge this gap with compartmentalized topics and numerous examples. ...

Many-Core Computing: Hardware and Software

Computing has moved away from a focus on performance-centric serial computation, instead towards energy-efficient parallel computation. This provides continued performance increases without increasing clock frequencies, and overcomes the thermal and power limitations of the dark-silicon era. As the number of parallel cores increases, we transition into the many-core computing era. There is considerable interest in developing methods,...

Beneficial Bombing: The Progressive Foundations of American Air Power, 1917-1945

The Progressive Era, marked by a desire for economic, political, and social reform, ended for most Americans with the ugly reality and devastation of World War I. Yet for Army Air Service officers, the carnage and waste witnessed on the western front only served to spark a new progressive movement—to reform war by relying on destructive technology as the instrument of change. In Beneficial Bombing Mark Clodfelter describes how Americ...
