the only thing I can say is WOW !

This is a very interesting and unusual book. It's entitled "Analog Electronics" but it doesn't cover DC or AC circuits, circuit theorems, inductors, capacitors, RC/RL/RLC transient circuit analysis, meters, magnetism or transformers. What, then, does it cover? You get v. extensive coverage of p-n diodes and diode circuits, comparators, filters, timing/waveform generation, oscillators, power supplies. The heart of the book is devoted to providing in-depth coverage of solid state amplifiers especially BJTs. Covers Op-Amps at length and FETs to a lesser extent. Plus lots of extras - phase locked loops, regulators, FM, VCOs and more. Contains end of chapter problems too. Book is designed for technical students in community colleges. The math is straightforward (basic algebra) and the various equations are mostly presented without derivation. Could be used by university students to gain basic understanding before moving on to their more formal analysis work. Best part of the book: The author's diagrams are ridiculously clear and well laid out on the page. The only book that equals this one for diagram clarity is "Basic Electricity" by Van Valkenburgh, Nooger & Neville, ISBN 0790610418 first published in 1954. Also, the explanations are excellent - unlike most technical authors he uses plain English (not math) to explain how the circuits work before plunging into further analysis. University professors should take note - this is how to write a clear textbook. TOC: 1. Analog Electronics: The Quiet Revolution 2. Semiconductor Diodes 3. Diode Circuits 4. Introduction to Transistors 5. Practical Transistor Circuit Analysis 6. Multistage and Power Amplifiers 7. Field-effect Transistors 8. Introduction to Operational Amplifiers 9. Comparators 10. Timing and Waveform Generation 11. Active Filters and Sine-wave Oscillators 12. Advanced Analog Signal-processing Devices, Circuits, and Techniques 13. Power Control and Interfacing Appendix 1: Answers to Odd-numbered Questions and Problems Appendix 2: Blank Transistor Circuit Analysis Worksheets Glossary Index There's probably lots of overlap between this work and his 1973 book, "Practical Transistor Circuit Design and Analysis". For coverage of basic resistors, capacitors etc try "Basic Electronics: Components, Devices, and Circuits" by William P. Hand, Gerald E. Williams or maybe "Principles of Electronics" by Colin D. Simpson
