NEW PRODUCT – The Art of Electronics 2nd Edition by Paul Horowitz & Winfield Hill
The Art of Electronics 2nd Edition by Paul Horowitz & Winfield Hill. The one and only. The Art of Electronics 2nd Edition by Paul Horowitz & Winfield Hill. Considered the best resource, now available at Adafruit. This is the thoroughly revised and updated Second Edition of the hugely successful The Art of Electronics. Widely accepted as the single, authoritative text and reference on electronic circuit design, both analog and digital, this book has sold over 120,000 copies, and has been translated into eight languages. This book revolutionized the teaching of electronics by emphasizing the methods actually used by circuit designers–a combination of some basic laws, rules of thumb, and a large bag of tricks.
The result is a largely nonmathematical treatment that encourages circuit intuition, brain storming, and simplified calculations of circuit values and performance. This completely new edition responds to the breakneck pace of change in electronics with totally rewritten chapters on microcomputers and microprocessors, substantially revised chapters on digital electronics, on op-amps and precision design, and on construction techniques.
Every table has been revised, and many new ones have been added. The new Art of Electronics retains the feeling of informality and easy access that made the first edition so successful and popular.
The best self-teaching book and reference book in electronics
Simply indispensable, packed with essential information for all scientists and engineers who build electronic circuits
Totally rewritten chapters on microcomputers and microprocessors
The first edition of this book has sold over 100,000 copies in seven years, it has a market in virtually all research centres where electronics is important

Electronics move so fast, this book was published in 1989, and wikipedia says that the 3rd edition coming by January 2011, is that true, i don’t know but is this book still up to date ?
Is there any chance that you will be offering a package deal of this book and the Student Manual with it?
@bob – they’ve been saying there is a third edition coming for almost 10 years, we know for a fact it’s not coming out in the next year.
@ed – we might do something soon, stay tuned!
I have to say this is one of the best books on electronics there is, I have two copies from when it first came out (managed to inherit one when my last place closed down), so I can’t comment on the additions for the 2nd edition. It is packed with useful circuits, hints and tips and exercises based on common pitfalls. I wouldn’t say it was a beginners book but one for the slightly more experienced, especially as it’s aimed at University students but it’s light on the maths and emphasises the “back of the envelope” style of design.
