I dabble in electronics as a hobby so a lot of times I will come across something with which I am unfamiliar. In those instances, a good reference is indispensable. I browsed this dictionary in a store once, and the entries I happened to look up were concise and thorough. However, it didn't seem worth the hundred dollars they were asking in the store (especially since the latest edition is over ten years old) so I picked it up on Amazon for about half that. After using it for a while I have discovered that some of the entries use language that is a bit technical for the hobbyist, but I can usually figure out what it is conveying if I think about it for a while, and perhaps cross-reference the material with another source like the Illustrated Encyclopedic Dictionary of Electronics by John Douglas-Young (which is written very clearly, but is much less comprehensive, with fewer entries, and is over twenty years old). I would actually give this book three and half stars. It's pretty good but not great.

This excellent dictionary contains definitions of approx. 25,000 terms. The definitions are concise, and descriptively and explanatorily complete. There are over 100 well-labelled illustrations. The appendix contains tables of International Systems of Units and two pages of well-labelled schematic symbols used in electronics diagrams. I see that there are used copies of the dictionary here on Amazon.com for only $0.01. That is an incredible bargain.

Graf is a legend. The fact that he put his name on a dictionary is very significant. It's the best I've seen and I've looked at a pile of them.
