Subjects are good but...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Practical Electronics for Inventors, Third Edition (Paperback)
I got this book to help me do electronic hacking. My knowledge dates back from a year in High School some 40 years ago. I have read about 10% so far and the subjects covered, mainly basics have been very helpful to me. That is good.
However, there a quite a few typos, and potentially other errors in the oversizes which I wonder about. The publisher (McGraw Hill) does offer an errata sheet, but there is no way that I can find to ask questions to the authors/publisher, nor forum to post to etc. I did write to the publsiher's customer service a couple of times but they do not reply. This is the bad.
All in all, it has been worth the money because the subjects covered are the ones I need. For a 3rd edition I would expect less mistakes, and I always expect the authors to be available to discuss their work, but this does not seem to be the case here.
