Reviews from Amazon readers:

5 stars Excellent Overview of Basic DC Electronics
This concise little book provides an excellent overview of Basic electronics, ideally suited for a hobbyist or someone trying to review. Interestingly this is a British book and includes both American and European symbols and notation

5 stars Just refreshing my memory
Just need a book to remind myself how electronics work these days. I used to have an electronic projects kit a long time ago.
