There is a book for non-EEs that explains (in easy-to-read and easy-to-understand form) electronics, for people supplying things to that industry. Also covered is electrical equipment that we have to use in labs and factories. Included are elec. motors, three-phase transformers, ground loop problems in instrumentation, elec'l. noise, SIMPLE(!) transistor circuits for making signals stronger, etc., etc. See customer revu at amazon:. You can probably buy a used copy cheaper than new, via amazon, since this has been used as a college (and vocational sch.) textbook, and students often sell those (to buy more beer!), even tho they really should keep texts like this, for use when they go to work.
