Note on the book: A IDADE DO ELETRON 100 ANOS DE PROGRESSO NA ELETRONICA
(The Electron Age – 100 Years of Progress in Electronics)
The author claims this is the first book ever to be published in Brazil covering the evolution of electronics during the 20 th century. The twelve chapters are written in a chronological fashion covering the saga of the Electron Age culminating in the birth of the incandescent lamp, telegraph, radio television, radar, telephone and the computer. The book is aimed at engineers, technicians, teachers, students and the general public.
In as much as the book is in Portuguese, it is not possible for me to review the book, and similarly, most AWA members will not be able to read it. The author states that much of his book appears in English on his website at www.fazano.pro.br. I encourage you to visit his web site and see what he has done.
