Colonel Wm. T. McLyman; Kg Magnetics, Inc; 3rd edition CRC Press.
This text is chock full of inductor and transformer design info right down to subtile influences such as primary-2-secondary winding positional influence on total leakage flux. (i.e do use bifilar winding). All kinds of informative tips & hints. Has core selection types regarding frequency response. Abundance of excellent pictorial diagrams and explanations in very understandable form. wow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Edition Images 6 July 2010
By Ian Goh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The images in the book (Kindle Edition) are of too low resolutions.
Even I zoom in using Kindle on iPad, I can hardly read the text in the image.
And in this book, there are a lot of text tables in the images.

Amazon, please update this book with higher resolution images.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book by Colonel Wm. T. McLyman 15 Aug. 2006
By cerrem - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I wish I had this book many years ago....Since it answers many design problems I have already figured out the hard way, through lots of grind and sweat... At this time I don't really need the book, but intrigued how the Colonel approaches magnetics problems in the same manner I approach them...
The book is written in a clear, no-nonsense straight to the point approach. The way all technical textbooks "should" be written.... Although a solid theoretical understanding is paramount in magnetics, there is no need to re-invent the wheel everytime you approach magnetics, the Colonel shows this, unlike books that start at Maxwell's equations to solve every problem is just an academic excercise to satisfy one's ego...
I did work at JPL briefly and wish I had the oppurtunity to sit down and talk to the Colonel...
I highly recommend this book... Other books to accompany this text would be by Reuben Lee "Electronic Transformers and Circuits" 2nd edition as well as the "Classic" "Magnetic Circuits and Transformers" by M.I.T (Hardcover 1958)
