4 out of 5 stars.
great book and was precisely what i was looking for.
This edition of Bebop begins with subatomic physics, leaps to Boolean Math, dabbles in Numerical Systems (past and present), cracks Logic Optimization, sandwiches in Printed Circuit design with a strong history of the evolution of electronic devices such as gate arrays and FPGAs, and wraps up with a recipe for Max's Gumbo!
While I'd been exposed to many of the topics, either in college or in 13 years as a Firmware Engineer, I must admit I learned quite a lot from reading this book. And most important to me, Max's geek-ish joy rekindled by own passion for physics and even ancient history!
This book is data-dense; while it covers many topics, it does so very thoroughly. Still Max's asides and sidebars tempt you to loose focus - I spent several days reading about ancient societies and their number systems!
I cannot recommend this book too highly. If you are working in electronics engineering, studying for such a degree, or contemplating such a career you can't go wrong studying this book! Max has done a wonderful job!
Thanks Max! I needed such wit and unashamed glee to rekindle my own joy at learning about my career!
