Some of the formulas are just presented without much comment on how they were derived, this is also true of some of the authors decisions on circuit design, in some cases they are just presented instead of giving the complete justification as to why such circuit or part was selected, yet one must recognize that the title of the book has the words "Experimental Methods..." in it, and therefore one shouldnt expect a complete academic derivation of every single thing.
The book covers a lot of material, every page is packed with lots of information, sometimes its overwhealming, if you were planning on doing some light reading this book book may not be the best choice. As some of the other reviews have stated, it does feel like it tries to cover a lot of material, the reader has to jump between different ideas all at once, making things unclear. Some figures or images are not referenced on the main text so you end up wondering why is that picture at the middle of the page, in contrast, many pictures have very large comments or explanations below them which feel out of place, many figures and pictures do not have a number, so the authors refer to them as "the picture above" or "the picture in the previous page" which makes things a bit messy.
I must say that I was a tad disappointed that all the material in this book revolves around the HAM radio aficionado, yes im aware that this is an ARRL book but from the title I was expecting something besides just HAM stuff.
Overall I would say that this is a great book and very much worth the money.
Not only are they reporting current consumption, but they measured it independently at different points in the circuit. As an experimenter, this is the kind of stuff you want to know.
