    Thanks for all the inputs!


  7. Missurunha says:

    Don’t you have a link to download?
    I want to read them..
    (You should add ‘Nikolav Piskounov’ to math books, his book (Diferential and Integral Calculus) is fantastic)


    • damitr says:

      Right now I have not added any links. Many of them are already available on the internet. Maybe sometime in the future link swill be added here, but not for now.
      Thanks for the input!!

  14. shibu says:

    Entertaining electronics by E.Sedov; translated by Eugene Felgenhauer by Mir Publishers 1973 is one such interesting book i stumbled upon in a used books store in Bangalore. While studying for B.E, I used to refer this book if I had doubts in my subjects. At that time I did not realise how valuable this book was.


  15. Muthuvel says:
