About the Author

Charles Platt is a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for Make magazine, where he writes about electronics. He is the author of the highly successful introductory hands-on book, Make:Electronics, and is writing this sequel to that book in addition to volumes 2 and 3 of the Encyclopedia of Electronic Components.

Platt was a Senior Writer for Wired magazine, and has written various computer books. As a prototype designer, he created semi-automated rapid cooling devices with medical applications, and air-deployable equipment for first responders. He was the sole author of four mathematical-graphics software packages, and has been fascinated by electronics since he put together a telephone answering machine from a tape recorder and military-surplus relays at age 15. He lives in a Northern Arizona wilderness area, where he has his own workshop for prototype fabrication and projects that he writes about for Make magazine.

Another excellent book by Charles Platt. The first book MAKE: Electronics is probably one of the best entry level books for people interested in learning electronics. While I still work my way through MAKE: More Electronics I think it's a worthy sequel.

The book picks up where the first book left off and this time deals with more advanced concepts. What the books share in common is the author's writing style. Charles Platt can write about complicated things in easy to follow manner giving great level of details. Later chapters reveal some (at first glance) really intricate circuits which gives me something to look forward to. Quality photos and wiring diagrams help to break blocks of text down making everything look nice and clear. If you're going to go cover to cover through the book there's even a shopping list at the end.

Overall the book is a joy to have. It's a combination of quality content and great MAKE aesthetics!

2nd Make Electronics 14 Jun 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Better than the first Make Electronics book. Better detail of parts in the index was a big help over the first book and the projects are very interesting and helpful if you are trying to learn electronics. I'm retired and this is something I have been wanting to do fro a long time and I'm really enjoying the book and the projects along with my Arduino programming that I am doing parallel with this book.

Excellent Addition to Original 31 May 2014
By T. DuBois - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a great addition to the original Make Electronics book. The author made the format work well in the kindle format, which is great. The experiments start basic and quickly move on, so you should definitely read the first book if you are new to electronics. The only thing that is inconvenient is that the kit with all of the components for the experiments is not available yet, so you have to find the components yourself.

More, but maybe too much. 22 Aug 2014
By Richard K Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book for purchase. I have read the entire book, understood much of it, but haven't done many of the projects as I am ordering the parts.
I also would require you to read the Make: Electronics book by Platt first, as I did.
I did not like this as much as his first book, as I think it goes too many different directions on silly projects. Yes, that is one way to teach the additional logic and special sensor information, but in a silly game way that I did not enjoy as much.
But, in both books, he teaches / refreshes hobbyist electronics in a very clear and interesting manner. He does not plug any company and urges you to use eBay for bulk buys. He is honest and refreshing.
I'm not going to do some of the projects, but I still learned and found the book to be worth every penny.

Just getting started 18 Oct 2014
By Corey J. Bramlett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I always wanted to get into electronics more. I picked this up and have been collecting parts and reading.
The pictures are clear, and the topics are explained in detail. Sometimes just getting setup and getting the parts you need takes the most.

So for someone that wanted to get started, the intro and setup chapters have been good so far. Common mistakes laid out, ideas of to look for in parts, and even the jigs and storage areas gave me some ideas to apply. He used jewelry containers and that is something that I normally would not think about. And building projects is about taking an idea and exploring it more. So before chapter 1, I have taken his jewelry idea and combined it with medicine bottles. I like the idea of having things labeled and in an easy to use container.

I love idea that are simple, such as the jig for wire gauge for breadboard jumpers. I had bought a box of pre-assembled ones and ran into the same issue described in the book. which is that I want colors to mean something in my designs, but the pre-assembled kit came with weird colors but also wires that did not fit all my needs. the wire gauge is just an idea to make things simpler.

I am only into a few chapters of this book so far, so I'll have to update later as they get more involved. It is taking a bit to get a collection of parts for building.

The appendix B I found to be nice to have for some of the charts. Although with resistors a color chart is good to have also if you have a box of parts that have just been stored together with no organization.

He really liked it because he is a shop teacher 30 July 2014

I purchased this for my son for his birthday. He really liked it because he is a shop teacher, and there was information that he could use in the classroom.
