It seems to go back-and-forth between being aimed at hobbyists and more serious electronics developers, but for me that was ok.
Provided good background on nearly every available type of testing equipment, what is necessary, what is optional and what should be bought versus made yourself.
There are a couple of problems with readability, but after reading the shoe book, I think these come from poor OCR when converting to eBook format. This is also noticed in several of the circuit diagrams/explanations, but if I configure out what it is supposed to mean I think most people will be able to as well.
Overall, it was well worth reading!
I'd have liked it better if the author had included a QUICK START chapter!
As an (unconscious) proofreader I found multiple errors as I skimmed the book,
both in the grammar, punctuation and in a few pictorials. I'd say it's probably a good book for Reference, but don't try to read it cover-to-cover as I usually like to do. I put it down after crawling through the first two chapters.
At about $15 or more it's overpriced; a better deal would've been $10.
Sorry I can't recommend an alternative off the top of my head, I know
there's more like this one out there.
