If you are a novice you will find it difficult to "teach yourself" electronics using this book. Some basic areas are not explained clearly or fully, and the order in which the elements of the subject are introduced seems quite random. As a result, for example, oscillators - quite complex instruments - are discussed in some detail before rudimentary principles of electronics have been covered. If you are looking for a book from which you can teach yourself about electronics without the aid of a teacher, look elsewhere.
