Wow, the success of the original edition of Electrical Engineering 101 has been
amazing. I have had fans from all over the world comment on it and how the
book has helped them. The response has been all I ever hoped for —so much
so that I get a chance to add to it and make an even better version.
Of course, these days you don’t just get a second edition, you get a better edition.
This time through, you will get more insight into the topics (maybe a few
new topics too), a hardcover with color diagrams, and hopefully a few more
chuckles 1 that mostly only we nerdy types will understand.
Written by an expert electronics engineer who enjoys teaching the practical side of engineering, this book covers all the subjects that a beginning EE needs to know: intuitive circuit and signal analysis, physical equivalents of electrical components, proper use of an oscilloscope, troubleshooting both digital and analog circuits, and much more! Even engineers with years in the industry can benefit from the compendium of practical information provided within.
