Perhaps a general thing to say is that there is little point in people reading an intermediate book too soon. Some people read something like Doug Self or Morgan Jones, then pop up here with lots of question and it quickly becomes clear that while they may have learnt lots of words they have little real understanding so our replies don't actually help them.

How long does it take for someone to gain reasonable competence in electronics? Starting from scratch (e.g. some science and maths, but no electronics) I would say 2-3 years of intensive study or 5-10 years of spare time hobby. To be an expert you can multiply these times by 2 or 3.
