Excellent book ... but may confuse you long term,
This review is from: Make Electronics: Learning by Discovery (Paperback)
I bought this book to ' get back' into electronics after 10 years away. It explains things from the basics and moves forward in a way that is clear and easy to understand . For this I would give it five stars..........
However there is a convention in electronics for drawing circuit diagrams ( basically inputs on the left and outputs on the right, with positive voltages at the top and negative or ground at the bottom) This book completely ignores this convention and I found the circuit diagrams difficult to follow as there is also no consistency. If you start with these circuit diagrams and move onto conventional circuits I think it could be very confusing.

There is a very specific reason the author does this, explained on page 54. I do believe it's easier to show it the author's way to beginners
