As the professor of electrical engineering at University College London, Fleming was ideally placed to publish papers.
However he also published a good number of books, interestingly with a variety of different publishers.
Books by Ambrose Fleming
Professor Sir John Ambrose Fleming wrote a number of books on a variety of subjects from electrical technology through chemistry to mathematics and the Christian religion.
Interestingly Fleming used a variety of different publishers to publish his books. He even used the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge for a textbook on Wireless telegraphy, although normally he used published more linked with engineering and science.
Being a devout Christian, later in life, Fleming also wrote about theology as well.
Fleming's first book was published in 1894, and his last just seven years before he died in 1938.
