This Book makes us learn Electronics in a very simple fun filled way by taking us into the world of Fantasy It's actually so fun and entertaining to read that, like a good novel, you won't be able to put it down. Every element of Electronics is referred by a character of his world of electronic imagination.
Take a look at the description of How current flows by Author Amdahl clearly explains electrons by playfully rejecting them all together. Electrons are a hoax, he declares, a conspiracy perpetrated by high school science teachers and guys who wear thick glasses and think pocket protectors are a sensible fashion statement.
Kenn Amdahl Makes Learning Fun
Because the "truth" is far too strange to believe: that invisible Gremlin-like beasties called Greenies are what's actually behind what we've been told are protons and electrons. It is these Greenies' need to "hook up" with each other that generates electricity. Okay, so it's a really silly analogy, and reading the book makes you frequently wonder what Mr.
Amdahl spikes his coffee with, but it is actually a great way to remember what does what in an electrical circuit.
There Are No Electrons: Electronics for Earthlings
So, bear with us as we step through the electronic looking glass into the world of the Greenie Theory of electronics: Electrons are actually the males in a species of invisible critters called Greenies. The males hang out waiting for female Greenies to come along so they can party with them. Protons are the female Greenies. Where they gather, they generate a huge need to party on the part of the male Greenies.

We know this "need to party" as voltage. The urge finally becomes so great that the male Greenies rush to where the female Greenies are.
