Giving this book a 1 star seems suspicious to me, probably a competitor. I actually own this book as it was a requirement for my motors class while I went through my ELEC program at (then) Dunwoody Institute of Technology in Minneapolis. (Now Dunwoody College) The book covers single phase and three phase motors, special motors, controls, relays, timers, DC motors, power distribution (transformers) and motor maintenance. The book was published in 1995 so one must take into consideration that some of the information may be a little history lesson being DC motors are used less and VFD's and PLC control are used much more in industry today than when I took the course. The book would still be of good use for a basic motors class.
This book offers a very incomplete and confusing description of all the subject material contained in it. I would strongly urge people NOT to buy this book.
