Regardless of the engineering/scientific field one is into, this book explains the methods of troubleshooting in a fun way. There are lots of "War Stories" reinforcing the major steps but more importantly, showing what not to do.
This book is especially of more relevance to current students as it trains them to approach each problem in a methodical way. That said, seasoned professionals can also learn a thing or two from it.

Most of the information presented in here is common sense. Nevertheless, after reading this book, I have become much more aware of the things that I do when I'm debugging my programs. That alone has made this book a worthwhile read. Unofrtunately, there aren't any exercises to work through and it does seem a bit verbose at times.
Don't expect this book to turn you into a debugging whizz but for those people who are new to the field of engineering, it may help with the learning process.

I started reading an excerpt from this book in a magazine and immediatly was captivated by the way that the author explained the debugging techniques he used.
By the word 'debugging' most of us will think of software, but the book shows us that the described techniques work well for both software and hardware.
The many experiences the author shares with the reader, in the form of 'war stories', make it not only and educational but also a light and entertaining read.
If you think your debugging techniques leave room for imrovement? Start reading this book!
If you think your debugging techniques cannot be improved?
Well, you definitly should read this book!
