How is that even possible? How is one able to understand Maxwell, Fourier,
Laplace et al without reading and rereading an accurate source (e.g. Not
Wikipedia). I can understand not reading Linux, and other specific
technology books as those are often outdated before leaving the printer.
But EE has been largely unchanged since the invention of the transistor.
