This is probably the only book on electronics that you need. Really you could probably learn all of this on the web, but this puts a summary of everything all in one place. In some sense it’s like an electronics textbook, but it’s better than that because it’s much more howto-oriented. And for $20 or so it’s an amazing deal.My main complaint is that the chapter on theory is a bit weak in making the math comprehensible. The main problem there is that in some places a new formula is introduced that uses a variable such as Q but Q is never defined. If I were writing this then I would create a callout box every time a new formula was mentioned that clearly spelled out what each variable is even if it seems redundant. For example: “Ohm’s Law: V=IR. V=Voltage (Electromotive Force) in Volts, I=Current In Amps, R=Resistance in Ohms. I depends on V and R.” And do that for every single one. This would make it much more useful for reference when you need to look up a formula and can’t remember what Q is supposed to mean.But the main point of this book is the non-theoretical information that it provides. For example, the real world models of various components like capacitors and wires and how they look in schematic form when stray inductance and leakage current resistance are added. Also, the chapter which is almost like a rewrite of the theory chapter but with most of the theory replaced with the details of various types of real world components that you usually don’t think about (such as different resistor and capacitor technologies) is extremely useful. Most of these little details tend to get left out of things like textbooks, perhaps based on the thinking that they’re too irrelevant.Though I wish some of the math stuff had been handled better, anyone trying to build electronics in the real world should buy this book. After buying this I really don’t feel like I need any other book.Lastly, some reviewers mentioned the thin paper. I didn’t find that to be a problem. I used to buy some “low cost developing world editions” of books that were printed on paper not much better than newsprint and this book has much better material quality for not much more money than a comparable low cost developing world edition of a textbook.
Having a BSEE, a copy of “The Art Of Electronics” and many copies of the Amateur Radio Handbook I must say that this is the best book on electronics I have seen in years. All of the practical knowledge I had to pick up over a 30 year career with just the right amount of math for the neophyte. I had to learn about heat sinks from a Thermalloy catalog. Now, here it is along with many other fabulous explanations in one bound volume! Thank you to the authors for putting this together AND offering it at an affordable price!
Having taken several Electrical Engineering courses as a part of my Software Engineering degree, and developed a keen interest in embedded systems, I wanted to pick up a book for reference on designing and building circuits. I was looking for something that would be useful both for reviewing topics and occasionally teaching myself something new, without wading through pages of examples and exercises, as is common with many full-blown textbooks. I read the description for the book, and it seemed to fit the bill, so I put it on pre-order and waited. It arrived around a week ago, and thus far it seems to be everything I was looking for, and more. If you don’t want to sit through the rest of my review, I’ll summarize by saying that this book is well worth the price. It is a big book, and covers a wide variety of topics in circuit analysis and design, from basic theory to electric motors to audio electronics. Each chapter includes an overview of the theory and big ideas of the subject, plus practical information for those looking to implement the ideas. I certainly was not disappointed.As I mentioned, this is a large book, checking in at nearly 1000 pages. “You could hurt someone with it,” as my old literature teacher used to say. It may weigh heavy on the scale, but is light on your wallet, in the $20-$30 range for a new copy. Another reviewer has pointed out that the low price is partially enabled by printing on rather low-quality paper. This is true; the paper is not of particularly great quality, but in my opinion this does not detract from the book’s worth. By no means is the book in danger of falling apart, so I would not let this minor issue deter you from picking up a copy.Now, regarding the content: this book is broken up into 16 chapters, or 17 if you count the three or four-page first chapter. The first “real” chapter is truly colossal, and fills almost 250 pages with the theory of electronic circuits. This alone is worth the price of admission. This is followed by another large chapter that deals with the basic components that are used in circuits everywhere, and includes many useful tables, diagrams, and sketches of almost every variation of the components imaginable (for example, the chapter describes 8 different styles of switches). From here, the book branches out into several areas of circuits. You can continue through the chapters in order, to learn about semiconductors, optoelectronics, and sensors; or you could jump ahead to chapter 12 to start on digital electronics, then continue to microcontrollers and programmable logic. In general, each chapter starts with a basic introduction to the topic, followed by subsections that dig deeper into the specifics. If there is anything to complain about structurally, it would be the rather odd placement of “hands on electronics,” which is chapter number 7. The chapter itself focuses on the physical construction of circuits, including safety, diagrams, breadboards, and other lab equipment such as multimeters and power supplies. Given the content of the chapter, I feel that it would have made more sense to place it after the chapter on basic components, rather than wedged between sensors and op-amps. However, I certainly prefer to have the information in a strange location than not at all.All in all, this is an excellent reference for someone who wants a one-stop shop to review any of the wide variety of topics that are covered. This book does seem to be more focused on breadth of topics than depth, so it may be more useful to hobbyists than professionals. In either case, the book should be a valuable pickup for anyone in search of a solid overview of electronic circuits.
I’m a certified electrician as well as an electronics engineer and i felt compelled to warn the would be buyers of this book that it has some life threatening errors in it. Specifically where the book references an electrical panel and shows that the neutral bus is connected to the ground bus by a bonding cable. This is a deadly mistake and should never be done. Panels have separate buses for the ground and neutral wires in the system for a reason! They are never connected together. The second related error is that there is about 1 Amp of current on the ground wire and that this is normal. The correct answer here is that under normal circumstances there should be ZERO current on the ground system as this only occurs under ground fault situations and must be corrected by the electrician. The third error is found near the back of the book where the power grid is described. The authors show that the power grid is connected to ground (again the neutral wire). This is an error as well. I checked with my college professor on all these points and he almost fell out of his chair when he saw these diagrams. These errors could cause a loss of life and this book should be edited immediately and this version pulled from the store.
Multiple pages misprinted and illegible.Approached Publisher for page pdf replacements, but they refused assistance, and stated Amazon were responsible.Suggest using other publishers with some consideration for consumers.Producing Poor quality products doesn’t seem to be a concern.
I have an older edition and chose to update to the newer one. Of course the way transistors work has not changed, or any other of the theoretical and basic stuff.The contents are greatly expanded resulting in a much bigger book. The contents are very worthwhile and many an Arduino user new to electronics would be well advised to get and read this book.
This is a great book, very well written and easy to follow with great diagrams and in depth explanations of the topics. It has a plethora of information from basic to advanced topics. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn the basics of electronic components, projects and also for those who need to cover the advanced topics. I have learnt a great deal from this book.
So far great! Very comprehensive and definitely worth the money. My only problem is that it arrived with what seems like an oil stain, which is why it doesn’t get 5 stars!
