But none of this explains my attachment to this book, which is on a much more emotional level. The fact that the entire book is handwritten and hand-illustrated gives it a very personal touch. The drawings are whimsical and endearing. How can you not smile at the illustrations of electrons gleefully zipping down a wire, or at a MOSFET with lightning bolts shooting out of its head because it got zapped by static? Even if you already know everything that you could possibly learn from this book, it's still worth a read. As the title of this review suggests, it's like a comic book for electronic nerds. I'm sure if I had been given this book as a kid it would have captured my imagination and gotten me hooked. Just thumb through the book and you can tell that Forrest Mims loves teaching people about electronics and has a special talent for doing so.
Know that this book might not be for you if you already have an introductory knowledge of electronics. Say if you already have a multimeter and work with electronics on the level of understanding where you don’t use instructions to make projects then this book is best to have as a reference or a niceness refresher for the basics.
So, I wouldn't recommend this for anyone just starting out. I would look for something that offers more detail. Right now I'm just using it as an outline of what to research more in-depth on my own.
