Driving Force - Woodworking
by James D. Livingston

As customers, you have shown a consuming interest in magnets, particularly the rare-earth magnets.

One of the many stories Livingston tells in this very readable book is how nuclear experiments led to their development, which later made practical such diagnostic tools as CAT scans and MRIs. But Livingston's book is much more than this. His ability to inform and entertain simultaneously makes this an excellent book for technical and non-technical readers alike.

He covers the history of the importance of magnets from why Columbus didn't turn back too soon to why Japan and Germany lost WWII. He tells us exactly why magnets do what they do and how we can expect them to influence our future just as they have our past.

Softcover, 6" x 9", 311 pages, 1996.
