"...a manual of circuits based on 'discrete' semiconductor components, such as diodes, transistors, FETs, and associated devices, and as such it presents a total of over 340 carefully selected and outstandingly useful practical circuits, diagrams, graphs and tables. It deals with its subject in an easy-to-read, down-to-earth, non-mathematical but very comprehensive manner."
"All of the semiconductor devices used in the practical circuits are modestly priced and readily available types, with universally recognised type numbers."
"This is Ray Marston's eighth title in the series of Newnes Circuit Manuals. His magazine articles on circuit design are published regularly in Electronics today International in the UK and Radio-Electronics in the US."
