Teen-agers, summer counselors and just plain parents, who have to face long, irritating, wet days indoors, will welcome [Branley and Beeler's "Experiments With Electricity"]. For with a little patience and with material that is lying around the house or that can be easily and inexpensively bought, a host of ingenious contraptions can be rigged up and made to work…. A good deal of information is nicely blended in with the instructions…. A scientific-minded youngster will find this volume a cornucopia of knowledge and enjoyment.
