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.. About the AuthorCharles Platt is a Contributing Editor and regular columnist for Make magazine, where he writes about electronics. 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 is the author of
"This is the perfect introduction to hands-on electronics" according to Sam Rismantab-Sany. I am about a third of the way through this book and I am loving it. This is the perfect introduction to hands-on electronics. I was an engineering student in college (although not electrical engineering) so I was always kind of upset that after spending countless nights of my life doing all sorts of crazy math problems with respect to circuits, I didn't know somet. Mixed bag, mostly good There is much to like about this book. Almost from the beginning, you are encouraged to do things yourself, and the experiments can be a lot of fun. There are cogent and useful explanations of things like the various kinds of mechanical switches, SPST, DPDT, etc., that can be pretty confusing the first time you encounter them. Even though intuitively you already k. Not just for the beginner! K. L. If you are either new to electronics, or just getting back in to it, this book makes it easy to learn how electronics really work. Hands-on training has always worked best for me, and I'm sure there are others out there that enjoy learning the same way. Yes, there is some reading to be done, but by experiment, you actually get to see what they are teaching. These

It's very good at disarming the fear. Full color is used throughout.As before, Make: Electronics begins with the basics. A completely new section on the Arduino shows you how to write properly structured programs instead of just downloading other people's code. Every step of this structured instruction is expertly illustrated with photos and crisp diagrams. Now the second edition offers even more!. I'll be recommending this book highly."--Tom Igoe, author of Physical Computing and Making Things TalkA "magnificent and rewarding book. I also love the sense of humor. No other book gives you such an opportunity to learn from real-life experiences.Ultimately, you will build gadgets that have lasting value, and you'll have a complete understanding of how they work. This really is the best way to learn.
