Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Rereko is just your average high-school girl from Electopia, the land of electricity, but she's totally failed her final electricity exam! Now she has to go to summer school on Earth. And this time, she has to pass

Luckily, her ever-patient tutor Hikaru is there to help. Join them in the pages of The Manga Guide to Electricity as Rereko examines everyday electrical devices like flashlights, heaters, and circuit breakers, and learns the meaning of abstract concepts like voltage, potential, current, resistance, conductivity, and electrostatic force.

The real-world examples that you'll find in The Manga Guide to Electricity will teach you:

  • What electricity is, how it works, how it's created, and how it can be used
  • The relationship between voltage, current, and resistance (Ohm's law)
  • Key electrical concepts like inductance and capacitance
  • How complicated components like transformers, semiconductors, diodes, and transistors work
  • How electricity produces heat and the relationship between current and magnetic fields

If thinking about how electricity works really fries your brain, let The Manga Guide to Electricity teach you all things electrical in a shockingly fun way.

Synopsis:

Rereko struggles to pass her exams in Electopia, the Land of Electricity, but is soon exiled to Tokyo, where Hikaru, a graduate student, uses real-life examples to teach her the fundamentals of electricity. This whimsical, easy-to-read guide includes examples and exercises with answer keys to help readers learn.

Synopsis:

The Manga Guide to Electricity teaches electricity in an innovative and refreshing way by combining authentic Japanese-style manga cartoons with practical educational content. The book's story revolves around Rereko, a girl struggling to pass her exams in Electopia, the Land of Electricity. Graduate student Hikaru decides to help Rereko after she's exiled to Toyko-he's quickly teaching her the fundamentals, such as static electricity and Coloumb's law; the relationship between voltage, resistance, and current; and the difference between series and parallel electric circuits. Hikaru teaches Rereko (and readers) about electricity using real-world examples like flashlights, electric appliances, batteries, and turbines. By the end of the book, Rereko and readers master even difficult concepts like capacitance and electromagnetic induction, the right- and left-handed rules, and how transformers, semiconductors, and transistors work. This whimsical and easy-to-read guide also includes examples and exercises (with answer keys) to help readers learn.
