Science books, Free Textbooks, Engineering books and more!

The technical and scientific category covers a very wide area of factual books. It can cover academic as well as more general interest science books. Nearly all students are looking for free textbooks and obooko can help out with some great technical books.

Let’s go through the main topics you find with science books and engineering books:

Astronomy and astrophysics is concerned with space and the planets. Learn about possibilities of life on Mars or the details of the galaxies and what stars are made of. Stephen Hawking is a well known author in this sub genre with ground-breaking books on black holes and space.

Building and construction is a broad topic in itself and covers all areas such as buildings, carpentry, electrical, masonry, plumbing, heating and cooling, health & safety. Also the more managerial side of things like estimating.

Chemistry will cover topics such as analytics of compounds and elements, clinical chemistry, food sciences, organic chemistry and theoretical chemistry. You can also find books on how to use complex technical equipment such as spectroscopy and spectrum analysis.

A growing area where technical expertise is required is in communications. Telecommunications and telephone systems are the backbone of the networks we rely on. Television and video is a fast moving high tech area with texts in this category.

Earth sciences covers the classic geography geology but this genre also includes many other sub categories and specific niches. For example, hydrology sciences, oceanography, meteorology, palaeontology and geophysics.

Electronics is another scientific category with a lot of very specific niches. Clearly another important topic in day to day to life. You can pick up books on integrated circuits, logic, fibre optics, semiconductors, superconductors and many more.

Engineering books on obooko cover a wide range of topics and there are too many to list all of them out. Some key areas are the classics of mechanical engineering, civil engineering, manufacturing, automotive and environmental. You will also find specifics in areas like Japanese techniques, nuclear, nanotechnology and a whole host of other options whatever your interest or career.

Mathematics is quite literally everywhere and important in all sciences. Mathematics books will cover a wide range of specifics, too many to mention here. But look for applied mathematics, algebra, probability, statistics, logic, trigonometry and geometry. You might also be interested in the history of mathematics and how it has developed over time and how we discovered new things.

Physics is also well represented in the science section and books will cover interesting topics like gravity, magnetism, mechanics, microwaves, aerodynamics, radiation and relativity. There are many more physics books on many more topics.

Finally, there are books on general science history and the people that have been at the forefront of science making new discoveries and applying their findings to real world problems.
