So I was and still am looking for a book which will tell me the ways I can identify what the parts are, what they do, how I can identify the faulty part by testing procedures, what testing machines apart from the multimeter do I need to do these tests. I thought this book sounded like it might supply these answers, I don't want to build projects and make lights blink in fancy patterns, I just wanted a book that can help me fix my household items that fail because of a resistor or capacitor or something. So I was a bit dissapointed , however it does seem like a comprehensive book for budding rocket scientist's.
Also some of the circuits don't work without some modification, example is project 14, the Blocking Direct Current circuit, when an AC supply is provided to the circuit it still behaves as the DC version, the LED goes out when the capacitor is charged, this is because an LED is a light emitting "Diode" which only allows for current to flow in one direction and as such this becomes a rectifier circuit that turns AC to DC, this can be fixed by having a second LED in reverse (Polarity swapped) connected in parallel with the first LED allowing current to flow in both directions +AC through the first LED and -AC through the second.
Overall this book is not to be used on it's own, might be an interesting read once you have read a few other books on starting with electronics but don't expect to build your own amazing gadgets from reading this book alone (at least without a high probability of something going wrong because of the lack of underlying math explained in each circuit).
In summary: too many pages for very basic content sadly - I expected a bit more.
