Editorial Reviews


"Who among us has not kept a cherished copy of AoE on our workbench throughout our careers? Engineers, hackers and makers of all stripes, rejoice for the third edition has been worth the wait! Packed with tons of delicious knowledge to navigate electronics in both work and hobby. An encyclopedia of electronics knowledge, [The Art of Electronics] is a pleasure to read through for tips and tricks and is an unbeatable resource. Take a day out to read a chapter - you will learn things you didn't even know you didn't know. Or, refer to the pin outs, diagrams, and techniques as necessary to guide you through a difficult project. If you think electrical engineering is magical then you must pick up this tome."
Limor 'Ladyada' Fried, Adafruit Industries.

"First of all, after I forklifted [Chapter 5] onto my reading table, I sat down and read it. It is simply spectacular. That may be an overly exclamatory language, but it is the only appropriate verbiage I can summon. Spectacular, deep and wide. I especially like the comments about interpreting specifications and the deconstruction of the Agilent voltmeters is just, well, wonderful."
Jim Williams, Linear Technology Corp.

"Wow. Chapter 5 details every circuit artifact that I've encountered in the past thirty years in a through, pragmatic, and straightforward way. My only 'twinge' is that [it] disclosed and explained (in glorious graphical detail and with real part numbers) many topics that I thought were my personal trade secrets. I love the plots. I know that it must take an enormous effort to collate all of the device characteristics. It's worth the effort. The way, it present's the data allows the reader to get terrific perspective on a lot of landscape in a single view. Nice work."
John Willison, founder, Stanford Research Systems.

"Horowitz and Hill's third edition, beautifully upgrades their earlier work, with substantial updates to detail, and without compromise to style, content, or technical quality. Like the second edition I've used for years, it is laser-focused on the working engineer. Delivered in folksy Horowitz and Hill style, it is rich with the kind of nitty-gritty information that's invaluable to circuit designers and manufacturers, much of which is absent (or difficult to find) elsewhere. This new book is a superb update, one which I'm sure will be treasured by those close to the art of analog circuitry."
Walt Jung, author, IC Op-Amp Cookbook.

"This epic work was created by two of the best experts in the field (with many others providing information). It defines the current state of the art in electronics. Most parts of the book will continue to be relevant for several decades. The 1124 pages (even more densely packed with highly accurate information than the pages of the second edition) will delight everyone who already knows about electronics. It is almost certain that you will like the third edition even more than the second. The information that is now available in the book is absolutely fantastic, both the quality and the quantity, and you should get [it] as soon as you can"
Wise Warthog blog.

"If you are looking for a handy and very practical electronics reference book, this is a good one. I think you will enjoy it. Thanks to Horowitz and Hill for updating this classic."
Lou Frenzel, Electronic Design (electronicdesign.com).

"If you are a hobbyist or maker who wants to acquire or improve a well-rounded knowledge of electronics then The Art of Electronics is an ideal book for you. It starts from the very basics of voltage, current and resistance without getting heavily dependent on physics theory or mathematics, and proceeds to cover a huge variety of interesting topics. For electronic engineering students, [this book] will help you develop the intuitive understanding, which will make it easier to put the maths in context, and it will be invaluable when you do practical work for design projects. The Art of Electronics brilliantly conveys its authors’ enthusiasm and experience of practical engineering and is an inspiring read. Many people have described the earlier editions as the best book on electronics, so [this third edition] had a lot to live up to; fortunately, it does not disappoint. It deserves its gold cover."
Ian Bell, Everyday Practical Economics.

'I believe the strength of this book stems from the authors’ background in physics. The key being that electronics is not their primary interest. This ‘application perspective’ is most evident in their presentation: the material is presented with the goal of understanding the behavior of electronic devices, circuits, and systems before the nitty-gritty details of calculating the behaviour. The authors are also liberal in their use of commercially available parts in their presentation, something rarely, if ever, seen in a typical textbook. There is an abundance of warning, based on real-world experience, of the many traps that lie in wait for the practitioner of the electronic art. In spite of the analog bent, the digital information in this book is an excellent source for the analog engineer to get started using digital systems for the control of analog circuits. All in all, a highly recommended addition to the working engineer’s bookshelf. ' Greg Oshiro , Journal of the Audio Engineering Society.
