Many of us grew up learning about electronics from Forrest M. Mims classic book Getting Started in Electronics. Since the demise of Radio Shack, we’ve been glad to see his work revived through Circuit Classics.

His subsequent book, The Engineer’s Notebook, was hand-inked in India Ink on mylar transparencies
