Graphene: The Superstrong, Superthin, and Superversatile Material That Will Revolutionize the World  - Joseph E. Meany, Les  Johnson

"Creating an electric field using the silicon wafer as a transistor gate with the two wires become a sources and drain across the graphite flake. This bears some explanation."

 

Phew. I was worried for a second there that I wouldn't be able to recommend this book because they didn't explain transistors. Of course, I'm not sure how comprehensible the explanation is to someone who doesn't know what the authors are talking about, but still.
