Great but maybe not for absolute beginners.

Perhaps I'm not the best person to review this as I purchased it simply as a 'memory jogger' for all those things that I once knew on the tip of my tongue but that now, age and illness have made increasingly fuzzy and uncertain.
Definitely not a sit down and read from cover to cover type of book but definitely one to have on the shelf for those moments of temporary memory glitch.
It is also not a book that you'd sit and pass your degree papers with but again, it would be a definite help for clarifying a few of the more suspect points. The section on power supplies has, to my mind, one of the best descriptions of bi-phase rectification that I have seen.
Over all a worthwhile book for the techies library.
