    Based on some requested info from respondants, here is more about the
    proposed Crystal Oscillator book.

    The book will introduce the basic concepts of crystal oscillator
    theory, describe their operation, and explore their various
    applications. Special attention will be given to environmental and
    operational parameters (such as keeping the crystal inside a
    temperature-controlled "oven" for increased frequency stability).
    In addition, there will be material on the use of crystal-controlled
    oscillators in embedded systems.

    I am not at liberty to reveal the author at this time since the book is
    not yet approved by our publishing commitee. But it is expected to be
    about 350 pages for $59.99.
