A clear and complete look at TTL! No technician's library is complete without this book. "Introduces TTL, telling what it is and how it works. Illustrates how TTL is used in many practical applications. Provides typical circuits and working applications. Discusses TTL strategies". -- H. W. Sams

Truly, this book is a gem. Although written in 1974, it is still relevant, useful and interesting. While TTLs aren't used much these days, anyone wanting to learn about electronics should familiarize themselves with TTL technology. And for that, there isn't a better book than this.
It should be noted that this isn't an introductory book -- the target audience is a working engineer who already knows electronics. But if you've read Make:Electronics (and perhaps Make:More Electronics) and done the experiments, you should have no trouble with this book.
While some of the information in here is a bit out of date, most of it is still valid today. The specifications for max operating frequencies given in this book are lower than the specifications for current day parts (big surprise), and a very small number of parts listed in here seem to be currently obsolete. The obsolete parts, for the most part, are predictable though. Most of the obsolete parts are for old technologies which are no longer used, like drivers for neon 7-segment displays and nixie tubes. A couple are for displaying information on a standard definition TV. The vast majority of the parts shown in this book, however, are still relevant today.
This book provides good background information on the characteristics of the different types of logic chips, and how to use them. It also provides a healthy sampling of useful circuits which can be made from these chips. Additionally, the book provides you with needed information on how to design your circuits such that they'll behave as expected, and have reliability.
In order to build good, truly reliable circuits, I recommend supplementing this book with "Circuit Designer's Companion." The, "CMOS Cookbook," also by Don Lancaster, is another great companion to this book. With all three books, one should be able to design very nice, reliable circuits which can perform some fairly sophisticated tasks.
I highly recommend this book!
We're well past the days of TTL, but I recommend this volume without reservation, as I have not yet found a better introduction to logic design.
If you are planning to use TTL, get this book. It's the best I have ever seen on the subject.

Still informative and most chips covered are still marketed.
