Review quote

"Wer fortgeschrittenen Projekte angehen möchte, muss zumindest das kleine Einmaleins der Elektronik beherrschen. Hier setzt Charles Platt mit einer ungewöhnlichen Herangehensweise an: Anfängern ohne Vorkenntnisse vermittelt er Grundlagen, indem er ihnen nicht nur zeigt, wie elektronische Bauelemente funktionieren, sondern auch, wie sie sich schnell und gründlich zerstören lassen. [...] Die unzähligen Farbfotos, Zeichnungen und Diagramme machen das Lernen und Basteln zu einem Vergnügen." - c't, Februar 2010
