Designus Maximus Unleashed! is more than a collection of article reprints; in this book, the original (unedited) text is revisited, along with new insights and previously unpublished material, all presented in the author's distinctive personal style. The accompanying CD-ROM includes a fully-functioning virtual computer, as well as BOOL Logic Synthesis, MMLogic Multimedia Logic Design System, and Analog Magic.

Clive Maxfield, a popular columnist, has collected his articles in a new order, grouped by topic, and expanded from the limits of magazine space. These articles have been published in magazines such as EDN, Electronic Design, and Electronic Design & Technology. In addition, he includes new material such as the history of computing, logic design tools, and the virtual computer. Two chapters of personal perspective begin and end the text.

Clive 'Max' Maxfield received his B.SC. in Control Engineering from Sheffield Polytechnic (now Sheffield Hallam University), England, and began his career as a mainframe CPU designer. He is currently a Member of the Technical Staff at Intergraph Computer Systems, Huntsville AL.
