About the Author
Charles Platt is a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for Make magazine, where he writes about electronics. He is the author of the highly successful introductory hands-on book, Make:Electronics, and is writing this sequel to that book in addition to volumes 2 and 3 of the Encyclopedia of Electronic Components.
Platt was a Senior Writer for Wired magazine, and has written various computer books. As a prototype designer, he created semi-automated rapid cooling devices with medical applications, and air-deployable equipment for first responders. He was the sole author of four mathematical-graphics software packages, and has been fascinated by electronics since he put together a telephone answering machine from a tape recorder and military-surplus relays at age 15. He lives in a Northern Arizona wilderness area, where he has his own workshop for prototype fabrication and projects that he writes about for Make magazine.

Please consider a trade and let me know.
If you want to learn electronics, you won't go wrong with Make: Electronics, followed by Make: More Electronics. The set of three parts encyclopedias that Mr. Platt has also published are well worth a look as well. These aren't tutorials, like Make: Electronics and Make: More Electronics, but they aren't simple catalogs of parts either...they go into the theory, variations, uses, and cautions for a host of electronics parts from transformers, to transistors, and connectors. Based on my reading of these books, I'd certainly want to take a look at anything else Mr. Platt produces!
