A second problem is that many of the semiconductors used in 15-30 year old designs are no longer available and substitution advice is not given. As a book published in 2015 of designs dating back to 1976 such information would be helpful.
Nevertheless for an enthusiast this book is a treasure trove of practical designs. Building a power amp by paralleling 48 inexpensive audio op-amps is perhaps the quirkiest design but preferable to a one of the slightly mad single ended Tube (Valve) or Mosfet amplifiers espoused by the musicality branch of pseudo-science.
