I have found it very helpful, and look forward to the day that I will have enough liquidity to afford a copy of “AoE” to see the comparison. Recent interests include high-voltage RF (to 15kV) and precision high-current electronics (to 6000A). The style of the book is that of an experienced engineer telling you all they know and emphasising what is important - rather than an academic / technical lecturer. Go for an easier one to start with, such as Practical Electronics for Inventors, book 4, and Learning the Art of Electronics then drift into this superb volume.

It’s really too bad that they don’t teach more about circuits design and manipulation in undergrad as it is more applicable to a lot of jobs.For some reason, I almost didn’t recognise it by the title on teh interwebs for several mentions until I got used to it, it sticks in my mind and heard it referred to in real life as “Horowitz and Hill” .

It would have saved me quite some friction had I gotten this book from the beginning of my electronics learning journey.After the initial book, the second edition (AoE2) was published in 1989, and the third (AoE3) in 2015, each one renewing and expanding coverage to keep up with the rapid pace of the field. It defines the current state of the art in electronics … Most parts of the book will continue to be relevant for several decades. Capacitors and inductors get extensive treatment since there are myriad imperfections that plague them. This unusual numbering scheme keeps the contents in correspondence with the chapters of the third edition of AoE, stressing the fact that a lot of this material would be right at home there. is particularly interesting, covering mechanical switches and relays, components that we sometimes forget have non-ideal characteristics.

I think the major difference between being an EE and a tech is that if you know the math, it’s not as hard to learn about the circuitry design, but if you know the circuitry it’s harder to figure out the math when there is actually a design problem, if you haven’t studied the higher level math. I will say that, having loved the style of the v2 pdf version, v3 seems to follow on in the same vein.

Horowitz and Hill's third edition beautifully upgrades their earlier work, with substantial updates to detail, and without compromise to style, content, or technical quality. Faced with “make one India can afford” or “leave the entire market to the pirates” for a big-name title, it’s usually an obvious choice for the publishers. Not content to simply give the theory, they delve into the practical aspects of tracing tunnel diode curves. If you don't, you can probably still pick things up through osmosis, and you'd probably get the most out of it on your second pass through. For a great beginner’s book, it’s hard to go wrong with Forrest Mims’ “Getting Started in Electronics”.

Read the Transistor section and it's very badly explained unless you know a good deal about transistors. For instance, the authors tabulate and discuss the leakage currents of a collection of BJTs and FETs for comparison and include a section on BJT bandwidth and transition frequency. There are also application circuits for measuring MOSFET gate charge and FET transconductance, with tabulated results for a variety of types.

Conductors, cables, and connectors are examined to determine the non-ideal effects they can exhibit. This epic work was created by two of the best experts in the field (with many others providing information). Many people have described the earlier editions as the best book on electronics, so [this third edition] had a lot to live up to; fortunately, it does not disappoint.
