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. As for out-of-the-way topics, there’s one page on low-voltage boost converters for energy harvesting — they present a simple circuit that starts up at a supply voltage of 20 mV and runs down to 10 mV. The only reservation is that the sheer size and weight means this is a document you read on a desk, workbench or table and not on your lap.

Again, there’s a smattering of application examples featuring FETs, including driving a piezo transducer, generating fast pulses for LEDs, quickly quenching high-energy magnetic field coils, and generating fast 1. In the first paragraph of the book’s preface, the authors give the basic picture: the “x” is for eXtra, meaning that the material in this book was originally slated to be part of the AoE3, but simply didn’t fit — that book is 1250 pages as it stands. Like it or not, this will probably continue as long as there are different markets with big wealth disparities.If you’ve been into electronics for any length of time, you’ve almost certainly run across the practical bible in the field, The Art of Electronics, commonly abbreviated AoE. 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. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.

While it’s not the beginner book that was requested, I suspect “Troubleshooting Analog Circuits” by the late Bob Pease can come right alongside “The Art of Electronics”. I highly recommend it for any electrical engineering student or graduate for the transistor chapters alone.However, for those interested in 1960s-1980s vintage analog synthesizers, this turns out to be a plus.
