"Intended both for students and as a reference for working engineers, the fifth edition of this popular engineering textbook is updated to include discussions of newly available integrated circuits as well as general advances in the field. Drawn from material taught to high level seniors and graduate students at the University of California′s Berkeley and Davis engineering departments, the work covers such topics as the physics of bipolar and MOS transistors, the technology of integrated circuit (IC) fabrication and the design and uses of operational amplifiers as well as many advanced topics in IC principles and design."

The text begins with the obligatory review of device physics and the development of active device models. MOS and bipolar devices are introduced together and the book switches back and forth between the two technologies with ease. Many analog texts will overdo bipolar design and skimp on MOS--while the vast majority of contemporary design is MOS-centric.
Derivations are methodical and beautiful. The authors are masterful at mathematical derivations. I particularly appreciate the way the authors will introduce a topic for bipolar design and then repeat for MOS design without skimping on the details. The repeative analysis may be slightly redundant to the experienced professional--but should be a delight to the student diving into analog design for the first time.
On the negative side, the book is a classic and has been in print for over a quarter of a century. The fundamentals are covered in great detail--and the basics are still the basics. Nevertheless, a few things have changed. For instance, integrated inductors (a mainstay of CMOS RF ICs) are casually dismissed as impractical.
But all in all, a very fine text. Well worth reading for anyone serious about analog design.
I got my original recommendation from other Amazon reviews (5-Star rating) and I whole-heartedly agree with them. If you are serious about Analog IC design, then this book is a MUST for you. It will not remain on your shelf, I promise!
The book is very math heavy but doesn't require a deep understanding of physics. It doesn't have as many fully worked circuit examples as I would like to see. I would highly recommend this book for anyone studying or learning analog electronics.
