This is an area of science that seems neglected, hidden in the back room of the "mad scientist". however, this book details both traditional and moderns means of obtaining, using, measuring & studying aspects of static electricity, including history. Several projects containing relatively common materials compliment the theory. The author is very open minded about science in general, although sometimes to the extreme. All in all, a very informative, even enjoyable read for anyone interested in high voltage electrostatics.

This is a must buy book for the electrical experimenter and science/physics educator. Very well written with unusual and unexpected material. Beautifully illustrated. Great plans for Wimshurst machine to make 14 inch sparks! Kinetic gravity and countergravitation experiments/information and more!

This book was and still is an indespensible guide to me and anyone else intereseted in starting out in electrostatics. It gives a wonderful overview of the principles involved, and take the reader on a thourough tour of how to go about building both sectorless-Wimhurst and Van de Graaff generators. A must have for electrostatic enthusists!
