Contains plenty of photographs. Each chapter covers a different step in the PCB process: from drawing the layout to drilling the holes to soldering. Within each chapter, all the popular techniques are discussed. For example, in transferring the layout, the author details photographic, iron-on, hand-drawn marker, and press-on methods. I highly recommend this book, especially to those who have never tried making their own boards. The book gave me the knowledge and confidence to try it myself.
