This is the thoroughly revised and updated second edition of the hugely successful The Art of Electronics. Widely accepted as the single authoritative text and reference on electronic circuit design, both analog and digital, the original edition sold over 125,000 copies worldwide and was translated into eight languages. The book revolutionized the teaching of electronics by emphasizing the methods actually used by citcuit designers - a combination of some basic laws, rules to thumb, and a large nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit values and performance. The new Art of Electronics retains the feeling of informality and easy access that helped make the first edition so successful and popular. It is an ideal first textbook on electronics for scientists and engineers and an indispensable reference for anyone, professional or amateur, who works with electronic circuits.
• The best self-teaching book and reference book in electronics • Simply indispensable, packed with essential information for all scientists and engineers who build electronic circuits • Totally rewritten chapters on microcomputers and microprocessors • The first edition of this book has sold over 100,000 copies in seven years, it has a market in virtually all research centres where electronics is important

'The best self-teaching book and reference book in electronics … The beauty and fun of electronics shows through.' Radio Communication
'Full of clever circuits and sharp insights, but with a surprising minimum of mathematics … The depth is genuine, as is the richness of examples, data and apt tricks.' Scientific American
'Far and away the finest book on the subject of electronics … in the last decade. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone whose research or experiments require some electronics.' Optical Engineering
'Another electronics textbook that became an international best-seller … the book is renowned for presenting the techniques that circuit designers actually use.' IEEE Spectrum
