This is the thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the hugely successful The Art of Electronics. Widely accepted as the authoritative text and reference on electronic circuit design, both analog and digital, this book revolutionized the teaching of electronics by emphasizing the methods actually used by circuit designers -- a combination of some basic laws, rules of thumb, and a large bag of tricks. The result is a largely nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit intuition, brainstorming, and simplified calculations of circuit values and performance. The new Art of Electronics retains the feeling of informality and easy access that helped make the first edition so successful and popular. It is an ideal first textbook on electronics for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone, professional or amateur, who works with electronic circuits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific reference book This book is a wonderful reference book for any scientist or other people interested in circuit design. It is complete and extremely useful. A word of caution though, this is a great REFERENCE book. For those who know nothing of electronics at all I wouldn't reccomend this as their first foray into V=IR. There are other books through which to initially learn. Get this once you've gotten to know a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended If you get just one electronics reference text this should be it. Even though it's nearly 15 years old, not completely up to date, it is extremely comprehensive and convers aspects of just about all areas of electronic design.
