It's not an in-depth treatment of electronics in theory or practice. Practical Electronics for Inventors would be a better choice for someone who needs to use electronics for real world work.
When it comes to learning electronics from absolute scratch, from a book format, there is nothing better than this book! I still remember how excited I was to build a working example circuit demonstrating the basic operation of a transistor! Today I design and build robotics equipment. =)
Forrest Mims is the worlds best science writer! Very right brain optimized! He reminds me of Michael Faraday in that he is very visual in the way he thinks.
