Tom Petruzzellis states that "this book is designed for electronics hobbyists, enthusiants, technicians and recent graduate engineers alike, who are new to the field of practical electronics." I believe he has succeeded. The book is a great reference for anyone, anywhere, who wants to learn to use electronics for fun and profit. The same way that a cook needs to learn about utensils, and appliances in order to turn grains, vegetables and meat into a delicious meal, Tom teachs what equipment is available to cook up a circuit that works, and if doesn't , how to figure out what went wrong. I highly recommend it.
