Industry veteran, Louis Frenzel, gives readers the real scoop on electronic product fundamentals as they are today, not the history found in other books. Rather than tearing electronics apart and looking at every little piece, the author takes a systems-level view. For example, the reader will not learn how to make a circuit but how a signal flows from one integrated circuit (IC) to the next and so on to the ultimate goal.

This practical application-driven viewpoint and breadth of coverage is unprecedented. This book touches upon TV, audio, satellite, radio, wireless communication, and networking. All of this content is brought to life through hands-on projects that readers will enjoy whether he is a hobbyist, student, or engineer.

"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."
