Rocketbrain Review:

1908 - 100 years ago this year (2008), perhaps so far in the past we would presume our forebears to be primitives, eh?In fact, calculation tools, mathematics, knowledge of efficient algorithms and methods for computing common problems was nearly as sophisticated at today.

What was the peak of this applied computing technology?

SLIDE RULES ... linear, circular, wood, metal, paper, with sophisticated log scales and computational capacities abounded.

Custom rules for computations of all kinds in engineering and design were commonplace.

This book takes us from total innocence to a good knowledge of powers of ten (log) computation methods, slide rule design, both conceptual and mechanical, and takes us on a tour of the various kinds of slide rules and their advantages and uses.

A bit of history here, but mostly solid practical knowledge, just as it claims to be.

This is a sound instruction in slide rule use, design, history, and a pleasant instruction to bring even the novice up to speed in slide rule use.

Now perhaps I am a tad prejudiced here in that I still have slide rules hidden around the house, one in fact, hanging on the wall behind the computer, where I can reach it to prove to the uninitiated how easily the "old school" can beat out Mathcad or Mathematica at finding a solution to most common engineering problems. I usually win!

Simply put, there is something profoundly reassuring about having a device that allows you to compute most any problem and does not need batteries or a net connection to function!

Get used to using a slide rule and I bet you start packing it on hiking trips along with a mini-sextant just for the sheer joy of being able to do science and engineering and navigation without batteries!

From the pyramids to the SR-71, one form of slide rule or another has helped humanity create some of the most amazing architecture, science, and engineering the world has achieved to date.

You deserve to treat yourself to this body of knowledge.
