These are some books that I wrote. They are freely redistributable titles appropriate for college coursework. They are each offered under a Creative Commons license. PDF is the .pdf format, ODT is the .odt format (Open Document Text), HTML is an online version (thanks to LibreTexts), and PRINT links to Amazon for a printed copy at a very modest price. For more info, contact and other data may be found in the front matter of these books. A description of the collection can be found here.

I have begun a YouTube channel to support these texts, Electronics with Professor Fiore. It is a work in progress: https://www.youtube.com/ElectronicsWithProfessorFiore


A Note From the Author

I've been a college professor for many years teaching in the areas of electrical engineering technology, computer programming and the science of sound.  Recently, the open educational resource movement has gained momentum (no doubt at least partly propelled by the rising costs of college tuition and texts). As I am no supporter of the growing "corporate-ness" in our society, nor a believer in the dogma that unfettered free market capitalism is the answer to all problems, I decided to do the dissident thing and offer all the titles here free. This includes all of the above technical titles which, if offered by a traditional college textbook publisher, would be fetching in the neighborhood of $100 for a lab manual and over $200 for a text these days. It is my hope that others will do likewise, all of us offering something of value to the community, improving the situation for everyone. An appropriate quote comes to mind:

"We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on."

    - Richard Feynman
