This was probably my favorite book as a child. I am sure I checked it out of the library more than anyone else. Amazon should be rewarded for making it easier to find any book at a reasonable price. More than any thing else it was responsible for my lifelong career and avocation. The book was in excellent condition and a fair price with great service from the seller.

I have been wanting to get this book for many years. I first saw it when I was in middle school during the early 1960's. I always wanted to build the 1 - tube regen radio but never did. Now in my 60's I would like to build it. This book along with others will enable me conplete this dream and teach me about the old techology of tube radio's. After reading this book I now have the basic knowlege of old time tube radio's. The Boy's First Book of Radio and Electronic's is as good now as it was in the early 60's.

I got this as a Christmas gift for my father, who is a retired electrical engineer. He was flabbergasted. He said this was a book that he would get on loan from the library over and over, as it was one of the few at the time that taught these principles. He sat and kept looking at it all Christmas eve, showing people pages and saying things like "see, that's how we used to make this" and "look at how we used to do that..." Many in my family are big on technology, especially my father, so they all had a blast going through this book to see how far things have come from these basic building blocks.

It was worth every penny to find a gift that "hit" the mark. My father loves the Big Bang Theory show. If you are familiar with it, you'll know how much he liked this gift when I relate that he bursted out with glee halfway through the evening " I feel like Sheldon when Penny gave him that napkin that Leonard Nemoy used... there just aren't enough gift baskets in the world to give you to show how great this gift is..." (You have to know the show to "get" it, but it's hilarious if you do....)

So glad that I can get these rare items on Amazon!
