Reader Review:
I loved the way this book is organized and laid out. The diagrams are easy to read and follow. The slant of the book focuses on the communication aspects of electronics starting off with a definition of communications and explaining and surprisingly clear detail the definitions you will come across. A good refresher chapter covers Ohm's Law, transistor and FETs configurations and a real good section on couplings and their effects on the signal. Diagrams of the spectrum analyzer's screen is used to explain modulation with out getting technical. All the math is basic algebra with no calculus in sight. There's a page in chapter 4 that helps you in designing common emitter amplifiers. AM, FM, sideband is covered including standing wave ratio and antenna theory. I wish I had this book when I was learning radio communications in the military. It's only 200 pages but the information provided is enough to get the beginning student up to speed quickly. The author doesn't go much into TV but he does cover various line connections from waveguides to coaxial cables. I love this book!
