    Well We've seen quite a few rendition's and some a little different stuff going on recent years and we know who to turn to and who probably already took a Peak at

    And always these same question oh I have this unit or that or why should I choose it over the next one stuff

    You have to look beyond it's roots in engineering.

    Hard for me; he has electrons in planetary orbits... that's not Engineering, that's just plain wrong.

    It is a Science and methodology that the math works and it works....and you can transfer over it all to other things etc.

    This actually has me more intrigued than anything.

    * Latest edition of Malvino and Bates, Electronic Principles on amazon is the 8th (Bates joined with the 7th edition)
    https://www.amazon.com/Electronic-Pr...nic+principles
    This is the one that annoyed me (I have the 6th edition) and had you intrigued; even so it looks like a good book to start with.

    * Perhaps you were looking at Practical Electronics for Inventors, 4th Edition by Paul Scherz and Simon Monk (Monk joined with the 3rd edition)
    This is also a good book to start with; much cheaper, but it has a LOT of typos. I sent what I found to Monk, about 100 and others have made lists (for the 3rd edition); I estimate about 200 found so far that are still in the latest (4th) edition. Regardless of this, I like this book; 200 errors in 1000 pages means just one error every 5 pages or so, some are trivial, some serious.

    * Everyone should eventually have a copy of Horowitz and Hill; The Art of Electronics; but I would not start there.


    I'd start with Practical Electronics for Inventors; the price is right even if the title is misleading.
    $20 for the 4th edition (latest)
