What's New in Make Electronics - 2nd Edition
'While there are some things that have barely changed at all', says author Charles Platt, others are significantly different in this edition. The new visuals are undoubtedly the thing that readers will notice first. There's color on every page now, with over 350 images.
'A new simplified section provides detailed advice on Internet searches and purchasing components', Charles says. 'I think it's a lot easier to understand than the first book, but it's still completely hands-on. Every other book on electronics starts with theory, but I start with putting a battery on your tongue-just as with the original book.'
Upgraded Projects Throughout!
- The dice simulation now has a unique new circuit and can run two dice instead of one.
- The burglar alarm is a new circuit with additional features.
- The reaction timer is now easier to build and can be precisely calibrated.
- The sound synthesizer now demonstrates the effects of coils and capacitors.
- The audio amplifier is now much simpler to build.
- Several new electromagnetism demonstrations.
- Three completely new Arduino projects.

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 a 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.
