Book Overview

Make: Electronics explores the properties and applications of discrete components that are the fundamental building blocks of circuit design. Understanding resistors, capacitors, transistors, inductors, diodes, and integrated circuit chips is essential even when using microcontrollers. Make: Electronics teaches the fundamentals and also provides advice on the tools and supplies that are necessary. Component kits are available, specifically developed for the third edition.

I bought this because I've wanted it for a while and it was half off. The book's editor, Simon Winchester, said: "The guts of the book are not.

   By far the best. Intro to electronics book I have found.
This book explains in an easy to understand way, with step-by-step instructions on how to do it and verify yourself electrical instructions. Diagrams, schematics and even drawings of the space shuttle are readily available on the Web. I've read the entire book, and I'm in love. It has helped me understand the 555 timer in particular, in a way that other books and material fell flat.

   Charles Platt has done it again!
He combines that with lots of hands-on activities so the reader can do the work themselves. This is superior to the usual boring electronics theory books. Don't worry if his books are age appropriate for you because they are aimed at people of all ages. I recently became interested in electronics and wanted to learn more. His books are perfect for children and young adults alike.

   Poor schematics.
The schematics are extremely difficult to read because they do not include any component values. The compiler has labeled the components R3, C1, Q4, etc., but there is no corresponding list of component values. Only the component values are shown on the proto board. The book says solder can be used on any surface, but recommends soldering components on perf boards for final construction. Nobody ever mentions that wire wrapping is just as good or perhaps better than paper. It's too young, Michael told the judge. I started learning about electricity in junior high school and I worked in the electrical engineering department for over 30 years. The only thing I would not want to start learning is multiplication.
