IEEE-USA Offers Free e-books to Members in July, August, and September

As a special benefit to IEEE members for the month of July, IEEE-USA is offering "Leading and Managing Engineering & Technology – Book 1: Perspectives on Leading and Managing." Gerard H. “Gus” Gaynor writes that the competencies needed to lead and manage continue to be misunderstood. As a society, we focus on leadership as demonstrated by politicians, industry executives, and individual effort related to some major accomplishment. The e-book considers the following topics as related to technical professionals and managers, with the objective of giving the reader an understanding of the issues involved in leading and managing organizational activities: Are leading and managing different, the same, or complementary? Is it possible to lead without managing? Is it possible to manage without leading? Does the technical professional have a greater role in leading and managing?.

For the month of August, IEEE-USA E-Books will offer "Survivor Planning: What Every Spouse Should Know," written by the late George F. McClure. In this practical reference, McClure urges readers “not to leave your family in the dark, digging to find important documents and information. Life has to go on after a spouse, partner, or parent passes away. Dealing with the myriad of decision processes immediately following a death in the family is a confusing ordeal…” This e-book gives guidance in advance planning, retirement benefits, wills, living trusts and finances. It also has a checklist that will help you organize all the important information that you will need, and websites where you can find additional help.

For the month of September, IEEE-USA E-Books will offer "The Reliability of the Electric Transmission Infrastructure In the 21st Century – An Analysis: The Energy Policy Act of 2005" written by Patrick Meyer, a former IEEE-USA Government Fellow. In this tech policy e-book, Meyer’s focuses goal was to create an analysis that would assist law-makers in understanding the technical issues surrounding the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and refer it as a background reference, to assist them in making educated and well-balanced decisions regarding the future of the energy and electricity industry. Look for the special link on 1 September.

To purchase IEEE members-only products and to receive the member discount on eligible products, members must log in with their IEEE Accounts.

IEEE-USA E-Books seeks authors to write an e-book, or a series of e-books, on career guidance and development topics. If you have an idea for an e-book that will educate other IEEE members on a particular topic of expertise, e-mail your e-book proposal to IEEE-USA E-Book Chair Gus Gaynor, or IEEE-USA Publishing Manager Georgia C. Stelluto.
