As an earlier reviewer has pointed out, the printing quality is very poor, particularly in the diagrams. Characters printed in smaller font sizes have a tendency to fill in with ink, so that digits like "8" or letters like "d" tend to be nothing but little blobs. ("Vcc" tends to look like "V**".) The manufacturers' datasheets in the back of the book are nearly unreadable. ("1*00 -- is that number 1500, 1600, 1900 ?") Even in parts of the book printed in larger type, the effect of the edge-bleed is to make reading a painful experience.
So, I am returning the book to Amazon. Based on Mr. Lopez's comments this is clearly not an isolated case of a bad print run. I don't believe (as Mr. Jung implies) that the Lopez review is based on some kind of illegal photocopy.
I've owned both of the previous editions of Mr. Jung's fine book on op amps, and I've very disappointed in what the publisher has done to the third edition. Prentice Hall, shame on you.
Yes, this copy is brand new direct from Amazon.
If the good Walter Jung comes back here, I want to recommend that he not use the small bold print, which is the worst. ex: pg.12 "Summary of Summing-Inverter Characteristics" is pretty much a squiggly black blob. Fig 1.9 has unreadable bold text, etc. Finally, the spec sheets are useful I'm sure, but not if they're not readable.
I hope Jung chews out Prentice hall for this mess, and that the 4th edition is better.
A shame. I would suggest not purchasing this book due to the above issue with the print quality.
Must warn though, this book requires a competency in circuit analysis. Novices are not the intended audience, but if you are comfortable with concepts of Kirchoff's and Ohm's laws, circuits with non-linear dependencies, and already familiar with basic op-amp usage, this is a fine book.

I worked with Walt Jung and he is the authority on OP AMPS. This is a must have reference book.

I liked the level of detail contained in this book, it has all the details and covers a variety of types of op-amps. I noticed the back cover shows the price as $24. Read morePublished on May 15, 2006 by J. Fedison
