This is a book suitable for beginners. I am currently a student in stem cell research (therefore I have NO background of electronics whatsoever!!) I started to be interested in electronics because I hope to do some instruments for my project. After reading 4-5 textbooks, including famous the ART OF ELECTROCNICS, I found this book is among the best for starter because it can KEEP you being interested in electronics. Most other textbooks have far too much contents for a beginners. This book, however, gives you just enough to know general aspects of the electronics. I never fell into sleep when I read this book. However, it is better to have some general knowledge of physics before reading this book. Despite some contents are dated, it doesn't really matter for a beginner.

The book is very 'dated', or should I say 'out of date'. It is difficult to follow because it starts on an area and then doesn't even provide all the basic information in that area before making a completely different reference to something else. It is poorly presented and written. There are many better books out there, buy one of those.

This book moves over topics very quickly without explaining them well. All the information seems to be there, but more examples could be used as some conclusions are arrived at with no workings.
All the diagrams in this book are very confusing as there is no consistent style, conventional current and electron flow are often shown at the same time on the diagram where one type or the other would have been better.
The history of electronics section is very dated, and appears to have been written in the mid 80's
Unless you have already done electronics or physics I would not buy this book

Must read for anyone interested in Electronics. It takes you from the very basic to complex level. Good thing about this is that you wont feel (during the reading) when you have covered the basics and now have come to a more complex level- very smooth transition. - I love it.

Format: Paperback
Beginners to the subject should not use this book, as it covers the basics quickly and without a lot of examples. However this book is a great read for anyone who has good base in electronics as Plant explains complex concepts in a very straightforward manor. Buy this book if you are considering electronics at degree level, as it is an excellent read for background knowledge and small enough to read over summer as a recap of various concepts taught at University.
