"Overall, this text is worthy of serious study for the care with which it combines theory and practice, and for the scope of its development from lowly, Ohm's law beginnings to substantive radio design incorporating gain and frequency stabilization." Contemporary Physics
This fascinating book provides a stimulating introduction to analog electronics by analysing the design and construction of a radio transceiver. Essential theoretical background is given, along with carefully designed laboratory and homework exercises. The approach ensures a good grasp of basic electronics and an excellent foundation in wireless communications systems.

However, having built one of the ORIGINAL NorCal 40 transceivers kitted by the Northern California QRP Club (years before the book was written), and having used this radio to make hundreds of contacts across the US and Canada as KD4ZPA & KS4RT, I would recommend the following books be read first!
Basic Radio: Understanding the Key Building Blocks by Joel R. Hallas and published by the ARRL.
Basic Radio describes radio theory in a much simpler, non engineering, manner. Its first few pages gives the background for basic communications almost 200 years ago and without boring the reader continues to give good examples, diagrams, and illustrations as radio communications progressed through the years up to today's modern digital communications equipment.
For a more in depth study of basic electronics, I recommend,
electronics DeMYSTiFieD by Stan Gibilisco and pubished by McGraw Hill.
Both of these authors are college teachers (Professors), but do a very good job of making what could be boring reading at times, very interesting and engaging. Very little higher level math is required, but both books teach the same concepts in a more easily understood manner than is possible through a book like, The Electronics of Radio. Either or both of these books will make understanding The Electronics of Radio easier!
Have more questions, my email, is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have not yet found that I must build a Nor Cal 40 to understand this book, but it would probably be fun to do so. Similarly, I will probably not utilize the modeling software that came with the book since it is MS DOS based.
While I have not finished the book, so far I like the book.
