Franco is one of the all-time classics on op-amp design. It is a very dense book, containing many details on every page, so much so that I find I need to read the same sections several times to understand all the fine details and to place them into context. The references at the end of each chapter provide some useful pointers to specific topics. Anyone who designs with op-amps should have a copy of this book.

I study Electronic and Electrical Engineering and this textbook is invaluable. It was recommended by my lecturer, who certainly knows which book to recommend!
It's a very good reference on everything from fundamental principles to much more advanced topics. On the website (link provided with the book) there's a whole host of useful simulations for PSpice, errata and numerous pieces of software to download.

All in all it's a good package, well explained and highly recommended!

I am studing audio engineering and I found it specially useful for understanding and developing basic analog systems. Also for begginers and advanced circuits with op.amps. It is written very clear so you wont loose by reading it, sure! I have no doubts it has been a right purchase. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about this part of electronic.

Sergio Franco's book demonstrates important fundamental concepts of op-amps, which is crucial in the design of analog/digital circuits, and ICs. It should deserve a sixth star if it also comes with answers to selected problems on calculation and design. This is an excellent text for undergrads or working professionals in need of a good op-amp reference.

This book is the best analogue electronics book out there. The concepts have been explained very well and proofs have been worked out in detail. A good book to get a good grounding in analog electronics/op amps.

This is a really good book. Im a 2nd year student in Electrical/Electronic Engineering and this book has immensely helped me in Analogue Electronics this year. Last year I didnt have a guiding book and my analogue grade suffered, I knew the equations but had no intuitive understanding of the various circuits. This year, its been far better, as this book starts from the first principles of amplifiers and builds onto the more demanding topics like feedback and active filters etc. But yes, some background knowledge in circuit analysis is recommended.
