Starting Electronics is unrivalled as a highly practical introduction for technicians, non-electronic engineers, software engineers, students, and hobbyists. Keith Brindley introduces readers to the functions of the main component types, their uses, and the basic principles of building and designing electronic circuits. Breadboard layouts make this very much a ready-to-run book for the experimenter, and the use of readily available, inexpensive components makes this practical exploration of electronics easily accessible to all levels of engineer and hobbyist.

Other books tell readers what to do, but sometimes fail to explain why – Brindley gives readers hands-on confidence in addition to real scientific knowledge, and insight into the principles as well as the practice. All written explanations and steps are supplemented with numerous photos, charts, tables and graphs. Concepts and practical aspects are explained thoroughly with mathematical formulae and technical schematic drawings.

Each chapter introduces a concept or tool, explains the basic theory, and provides clear instructions for a simple experiment to apply the concept or tool, with quiz sections and answers, at the end of each chapter. New chapters on multimeters and soldering will be added, covering the fundamentals and experiments, with a basic parts list and an expanded and updated buyer’s guide.

  • Guides the reader through the basics of electronics, from fundamentals of theory to practical work and experiments
  • Structured for learning and self-study: each chapter introduces a concept or tool, explains the basic theory, and provides clear instructions for a simple experiment to apply the concept or tool, with quiz sections and answers, at the end of each chapter
  • New chapters on multimeters and soldering, covering the fundamentals and experiments, with a basic parts list. Expanded and updated buyer’s guide to accompany parts lists

Book Description:

A practical how-to guide to electronics construction and the design of simple circuits

From the Back Cover:

Cutting through the normal difficulties, jargon and acronyms that appear to shroud the concepts and characteristics of electronics knowledge, Starting Electronics casts aside the barriers that face the beginner from day one of any introduction to electronics. From its first publication nearly 20 years ago, this book has guided literally thousands of readers into the practical electronics age. 

Now this best-selling introduction to electronics reaches its fourth edition, building ever-more successfully upon its earlier editions with significant new material covering all aspects of soldering for the hobbyist — one of the areas beginners find one of the hardest to master properly. With the same detailed descriptions of processes, artwork and photographs as always, Starting Electronics introduces us all to highly technical topics, in a way that even the most technophobe of us will be able to understand and learn, and with a little practice, do ourselves.

In Starting Electronics, in a highly practical and constructive way, ex-electronics-teacher and journalist Keith Brindley introduces us to the basic foundations and building blocks of electronics. He does this in his unique chatty, friendly style, giving us the pointers and knowledge that we need, making us all feel part of the modern electronics world and giving us the belief in ourselves to progress even further. Starting Electronics is the ideal beginners' introduction to the fascinating world of electronics.
