Reviews

"The author, a Technology Editor for Electronic Design, has written an introductory electronics book for people with short attention spans, no scientific or technical knowledge, and “looking for near-instant gratification of electronics knowledge.” Instead of approaching electronics bottom-up beginning with components, then circuits, and finally systems, the author takes a top-down approach, emphasizing block diagrams at the expense of what is in them. One reason is that electronics is now too complicated to understand by non-experts at any but the block-diagram level."
