Welcome to our Web site. Our mission is to publish concise and easy-to-learn educational texts at affordable prices. Most of our books are MATLAB®-and Simulink®-based, well known, and now sold worldwide. Our titles are ideal for self-study. No previous knowledge of MATLAB is required; the material in the appendices and the inexpensive MATLAB Student Version (12 through 17) is all you need. Even though our texts can be used without MATLAB, we highly recommend to our readers to first read the appendices that serve as an introduction to MATLAB to become familiar with this outstanding software package, then go through the MATLAB script following the examples. We believe that learning by example is the best way to become proficient with MATLAB. If you are interested in advanced scientific and engineering computations, The MathWorks™ products at www.mathworks.com are for you. Our texts along with The MathWorks™ products will take you to a higher level of education.

Here is what our customers say about our texts:

It looks like you have a wonderful mission with your technical books. They fill a need that has gone begging. Unless the students know these principles well, all else will come to naught in their engineering career. I see much of the basics in your publications. Keep up the good work! Harlan L. Faller, P.E., Engineering Manager, Johnstech International Corp., Minneapolis, MN

I'm a senior EE student, and I love your books. I've used them to prepare for the electrical exam portion of the FE. They're incredibly well-written and easy to follow. I would just like to suggest that you make a book on Electromechanics. That is, electric motors/generators and transformers and solenoids, electromagnetic circuits. I'm sure the results would be amazing like all the rest of your books. Thanks. Again your books are some of the best texts in Electrical Engineering I've ever read at a fraction of the cost of regular textbooks, so please feel free to post my comments on your website.Brian Marshall

Keep churning more books. What you're doing is a great service to all of us trying to learn something new in MATLAB and Simulink. Lina Chang, CIV NAVAIR

Signals & Systems a great book!!
I am a computer engineering student from Universidad Oberta de Cataluña (Spain). I am very happy to have found out your publications about engineering. I bought most of your eBooks and I am waiting for Networks eBook to become available. I find all them to be very useful to me and I think that you are doing a really good work. Juan Manuel Pache

Fantastic products. Look forward to purchasing more course books. eBay buyer


Steven, you have done a wonderful contribution to our profession, my sincere congratulations ! I really liked your Circuit Analysis I text, and I am currently using it this semester. Dr. Marcelo Godoy Simoes, Colorado School of Mines, Golden CO

Great Book & CD. Well worth the wait. AAAAAAA++++++++!!!!!!!!!!!!eBay buyer

You did a fantastic job with these two publications (Circuit Analysis I and II) J. Song-Manguelle, Lead Power Electronics Eng. at GE Global Research, Niskayuna, NY

I just want to tell you that this is the best book (Digital Circuit Analysis and Design, Second Edition) I have hold in my hands. Aleksandar Petkovski, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia.

I must say its an excellent book, very well written and everything explained in a logical progression. I have found many books that jump in at a very fast pace making all sort of assumptions. Your book hits it just right for me. Michael Tout, Northampton, England.

You are one of the best authors and publisher of educational books in the field of electrical engineering products. Many students around the world are following your books because they started with basic principles and the hard examples are at the end. You are a professional engineer and your books do best training for students and I want to thank you for all these reasons. mhd krs
