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.

You lost a large proportion of the original commentors by failing
to make this a part of the previous thread.  It is silly to start
new threads on the same subject.

It's also silly to create a separate thread in each of several forums.
This is when cross-posting should be used.
