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.
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 have considered trying to return it and get my money back but I don't really know how I'll get the information then.
