I find this excellent but succinct guide to be extremely valuable to the newer electronics hobbyist, or someone trying to obtain the maximum function in an electronics lab at minimal cost and within a very limited space, or

To be honest: I was extremely disappointed by the content of this book. The only time Arduino was mentioned, was a caption under a picture ! And building your own tools explains that you can build your own 5V lab power supply by....cutting off the mini USB jack of a USBcharger. You also learn that you cut wires with a wire-cutting tool, etc.
I will admit that, allthough the content was way to meager to be interesting, I read the book from cover to cover. Why? Because the author has a very humorous way of writing (f.e. "allways wear protection, there are no spare parts laying around for things like your eyes, your ears, ....").
If you want a very basic lecture on electricity/electronics and you are a (allmost complete) novice in the field, then maybe you get something out of the book, but else.....
Did I enjoyed reading the book; definitly yes !! Did I had fun reading the book: Yes ! Did I learned something....unfortunatly not.
