About the Author
Ian Sinclair was born in 1932 in Tayport, Fife, and graduated from the University of St. Andrews in 1956. In that year, he joined the English Electric Valve Co. in Chelmsford, Essex, to work on the design of specialised cathode-ray tubes, and later on small transmitting valves and TV transmitting tubes. In 1966, he became an assistant lecturer at Hornchurch Technical College, and in 1967 joined the staff of Braintree College of F.E. as a lecturer. His first book, 'Understanding Electronic Components' was published in 1972, and he has been writing ever since, particularly for the novice in Electronics or Computing. The interest in computing arose after seeing a Tandy TRS80 in San Francisco in 1977, and of his 204 published books, about half have been on computing topics, starting with a guide to Microsoft Basic on the TRS80 in 1979. He left teaching in 1984 to concentrate entirely on writing, and has also gained experience in computer typesetting, particularly for mathematical texts. He has recently visited Seattle to see Microsoft at work, and to remind them that he has been using Microsoft products longer than most Microsoft employees can remember. Ian Sinclair is the author of the following Made Simple books: Lotus 1-2-3- (2.4 DOS version) MS-DOS (up to version 6.22) PagePlus for Windows 3.1 Hard drives He is also the author of many other books published under our Newnes imprint.Visit Ian's website at http://website.lineone.net/~ian_sinclair

It is fair to say I have read (or browsed atleast) a massive amount of books on this subject area.
I can say without any shadow of doubt that this is the best electronics hndbook on sale at this moment in time.
It covers the same areas as every other handbook writted in the last fifty years (resistors, capacitors, transformers etc.), but is fully updated with very respectable chapters on micro processors, complex programmable logic devices, electronic computer aided design, industry standard design practices plus so much more.
I found this book in my local library and am now looking to purchase it for future refrence's.
I would highly recommend buying this book, or atleast checking it out at your nearest library.
I will be definitely be buying the 7th Edition ( if its released ). A genuine must have for all electronics students , and engineers. 10/10.
( Might I also recommend buying from FatBrain on the checkout as I ordered from them , and received my book 10 days before the limit in excellent condition.
Well rant over - ye be warned, I was hoping this was going to be a lighter read than "the art of electronics" just to refresh my memory and pick up a few more details here and there but looks like I'll have to go with the more hardcore "the art of electronics" (that is a bit too in depth at times for a hobbiest) when i actually want to know something and read this one for "entertainment" value
